On April 1, Southern Air (2nd) (Anchorage) will return to Miami and will begin weekly all-cargo service from Miami International Airport to Hong Kong via Anchorage. The new scheduled freighter flights will be served by Boeing 777F aircraft.
Hong Kong is MIA’s fourth-leading trade market in Asia, responsible for more than $500 million in freight annually. In 2017, MIA’s trade with the entire Asia world region was valued at $7.8billion – a 16-percent increase from $6.7 billion in 2016.
Southern Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide, Inc., will become the sixth airline at MIA with all-cargo service from Asia, joining: Asiana Airlines (Seoul); Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong); China Airlines (Taipei); Korean Air (Seoul); and Polar Air (Seoul).
