Ethiopian Airlines adds Miami to its freighter network
Aug 31, 2018: One of the leading African carriers Ethiopian Airlines has launched the first of two weekly freighter flights between the Addis Ababa and Miami on August 29, creating the first-ever cargo-only route between the African continent and Miami Airport.
The airline will deploy B777-200LRF freighter aircraft on the route.
The scheduled flights will operate on a route that includes intermediate stops in Spain, Colombia and Belgium on inbound and outbound services.
“We look forward to the additional revenue, jobs and business ties these new flights will bring to our community,” said Carlos A Gimenez, Miami-Dade County Mayor.
“We are very pleased to see Zaragoza, Miami, and Bogota joining our fast expanding freighter network in the Americas,” said Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines.
“With the new service, Ethiopian will carry Inditex high-end textile products from Zaragoza to the Americas.”
MIA’s ongoing expansion of new cargo services continues to grow.
During 2017, TACA Peru began four weekly freighter flights from five South American cities; Mexico-based Aeronaves TSM commenced 10 weekly freighter flights from Cancun; and Qatar Airways launched two weekly cargo flights from Doha, with intermediate stops in Luxembourg, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Quito, and Liege. In 2018, Southern Air began weekly all-cargo service from Hong Kong via Anchorage; Turkish Cargo launched a second weekly frequency from Istanbul; and Polar Air Cargo launched direct Tokyo freighter service.
“We applaud Ethiopian Airlines for bringing us MIA’s first cargo destination in Africa,” said Lester Sola, director, Miami-Dade Aviation. “Our unrivaled position as the international cargo capital of the US and the gateway of the Americas continues to attract new service from key markets in Europe, the Middle East, and now, one of the busiest air cargo hubs in Africa.”
