Thank Ethiopian Airlines for the first-ever cargo-only route between the African continent and Miami International Airport (MIA). On August 29, 2018, Ethiopian launched the first of two weekly freighter flights between the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa and Miami.
The scheduled flights operate on a route that includes intermediate stops in Spain, Colombia, and Belgium on inbound and outbound services. All flights utilize B777-200LRF freighter aircraft.
Ethiopian’s new service is the latest milestone in MIA’s strategic plan to expand into new global markets. The airport currently offers more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other U.S. airport, and is the top U.S. airport for international freight.
