Amerijet is to operate a direct cargo route is to operate between Miami and Brussels.
The company operates a fleet of B767 Freighter aircraft serving a wide variety of destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America and operates its own terminal at Miami International Airport. This new route marks an important step in the company’s history, flying its first scheduled transatlantic route connecting its network to Europe.
The new service is planned to commence in the second quarter of 2018 with 2 frequencies per week. Based on demand and performance of the route, additional frequencies will be added.
On this decision to fly directly to Europe, CEO Vic Karjian commented: “The airport, its strategic location, facilities and strong business community played a vital role in our selection of Brussels as our European gateway.”
Brussels Airport Head of Cargo & Logistics, Steven Polmans, is very excited with the announcement of this new route. “The countries in Amerijet’s network are important to us and have been very much under-served with direct main deck capacity. With Amerijet joining our customers we can now offer a unique network and new destinations to our cargo community. Especially for both pharma and perishables they will strengthen the offer to and from Brussels. Not only is Amerijet almost certified as CEIV, with Miami Airport we work close together and have created pharma.aero. So the fact Amerijet as a CEIV airline will link both our hubs with a full cargo aircraft is a next step in offering customers an end to end solution for pharmaceuticals.”
