Etihad adds new Miami freighter link

Miami International Airport welcomed its first weekly flight by Etihad Cargo last week.
The new scheduled freighter flights, served by Boeing 777-200F aircraft, make a stop in Columbus, Ohio before continuing to Miami, Amsterdam and Abu Dhabi.
The route launch makes Miami the airline’s third US cargo route and fourth in the Western Hemisphere, joining Columbus, Tucson and Bogota.
Etihad Cargo’s entry into the Miami market now also gives MIA two all-cargo routes in the surging Middle East region.
Etihad Airways is the fourth carrier to launch all-cargo service at MIA this year.
In February, Qatar Airways launched two weekly cargo flights from Doha and Miami, with stops in South America and Europe; Mexico-based Aeronaves TSM commenced 10 weekly flights from Cancun in March; and TACA Peru began four weekly freighter flights from five South American cities in August.
