On August 29, Ethiopian Airlines launched the first of two weekly freighter flights between the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa and Miami, creating the first-ever cargo-only route between the African continent and Miami International Airport. The scheduled flights will operate on a route that includes intermediate stops in Spain, Colombia and Belgium on inbound and outbound services. All flights will utilize Boeing 777-200LRF freighter aircraft.

Ethiopian’s announcement is the latest milestone in MIA’s strategic plan to expand into new global markets, adding to the synergies created by its extensive cargo network throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

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.

Ethiopian Airlines issued this short statement:

Ethiopian Airlines, the largest Aviation Group in Africa and SKYTRAX certified Four Star Global Airline, is pleased to announce that it commenced twice weekly freighter service to Bogota, Colombia on August 29, 2018. The cargo service will depart from Zaragoza (Spain) and will fly to Bogota with a stopover in Miami, using the Boeing 777 freighter aircraft.

The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded Delta the ability to resume nonstop scheduled service to Cuba on August 31, 2016, and the return flights from the three U.S. cities to Havana took place on December 1, 2016.

The airline began offering daily flights for the first time in 55 years, connecting Havana with Miami, New York-JFK, and Atlanta. Delta was the first U.S. airline to open a City Ticket Office at the Havana sector of La Rampa, which was later expanded to accommodate increased customer demand.

Delta continues to expand connectivity options for customers traveling between the United States and Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2018, Delta launched a series of services from New York, including:

  • one to Antigua and Barbuda, beginning on December 22, 2018
  • a second daily flight to Nassau, The Bahamas, starting October 1, 2018
  • a new daily service to Kingston, Jamaica, effective December 20, 2018
