KF Cargo launches Miami freighter services to South America

Canadian airline KF Cargo has added two new air cargo services between Miami and various destinations in South America.
The airline, a subsidiary of KF Aerospace, will operate three weekly round-trip flights between Miami and Bogota and three weekly flights on a triangular route from Miami to Caracas and onto Lima.
The first flight, which arrived on April 15 and was carried out by a DC-10-30 freighter, carried thousands of flowers for the Mother’s Day peak period.
Miami-Dade aviation director Emilio González said: “We proudly welcome KF Cargo to our roster of 41 all-cargo airlines, and we wish them the greatest success in their expansion to MIA and into our bustling Latin American trade routes.
“As the busiest US airport for international freight and as the cargo gateway of the Americas, MIA’s extensive route network and trade infrastructure continue to attract new cargo carriers.”
KF Cargo is not the only Canadian airline looking to capitalise on the South American market.
Last week, Air Canada re-entered the freighter world through a partnership with Cargojet to offer services between Canada and Latin America. The service will begin in early June.
