NAC to operate charter freighters from Miami International


US freighter airline Northern Air Cargo (NAC) will operate four weekly charter cargo flights from Miami International Airport (MIA) from 1 November, 2016.

This will include two weekly roundtrip freighter flights on a triangular route between MIA, San Juan and Saint Martin; one weekly flight that will operate between MIA and Santo Domingo; and one weekly flight that will serve a triangular route between MIA, Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo.

NAC will use a Boeing 737-300 Freighter aircraft for the new service.

Miami-Dade Aviation director, Emilio T. González says: “We look forward to welcoming Northern Air Cargo to MIA, and we wish them success on their expansion to the Latin American and Caribbean region.

“MIA’s vast route network across the globe, in addition to our evolving cargo logistics infrastructure, continues to attract freighter airlines from around the world.”

NAC is the third all-cargo airline to start service at MIA this year. In April, Canadian airline KF Cargo launched charter freight service between MIA and multiple points  in South America.

In November, US carrier 21 Air is scheduled to begin eight weekly roundtrip freighter flights to Latin America, with six weekly frequencies between MIA and Bogotá, and two weekly flights on a triangular route between MIA, Panama City and Guatemala City.

NAC and 21 Air will join MIA’s current total of 107 passenger and cargo-only airlines – the most of any US airport.
