MIA announces new Hong Kong-Miami cargo service

Southern Air will become sixth airline at MIA with all-cargo flights from Asia

On April 1, Southern Air will begin weekly all-cargo service at Miami International Airport from Hong Kong via Anchorage. The new scheduled freighter flights will be served by Boeing B777F 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 $7.8 billion – a 16-percent increase from $6.7 billion in 2016.

We are thrilled to add Southern Air to our growing route network in Asia. As the busiest U.S. airport for international freight, it is especially gratifying to welcome additional cargo service from Hong Kong, the world’s busiest freight airport.
Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola

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).
