MIA includes Amazon Air's cargo flight operations

Miami International Airport (MIA) has announced it has become part of Amazon Air´s cargo flight operations, the campy said.

The company has launched double-daily freighter service at MIA to destinations across the U.S. The new cargo service is being operated by Atlas Air Worldwide with Boeing 767-300F aircraft, and includes an onsite facility to sort packages bound for their next destination.

Amazon already operates four warehouses in Miami-Dade County, all within 12 miles of MIA — the largest of which is a new 885,000-square-foot fulfillment center at Miami-Opa locka Executive Airport just completed this year.
