Korean Air started cargo flights on its Seoul-Miami route on July 14th. This weekly service is now being offered temporarily every Friday. Starting August 22nd, regular cargo flight service will be launched twice a week on every Tuesday and Friday.
The newly-launched cargo service between Seoul and Miami is expected to improve transport services for not only cargo leaving or arriving at Miami but also that of Central and South America . In the past, most of the cargo heading for Miami or Central and South America were transported by air to New York, Chicago and Atlanta and then trucked or carried by other airlines to final destinations. But the non-stop flight to Miami greatly reduced transport time.
The major items delivered on Seoul-Miami route include cell phones, electronic appliances, automobile spare parts, textiles and agricultural and marine products.
Korean Air is increasing its effort to transport cargo smoothly departing or arriving at Central and South America, including Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Guatemala, Columbia, Panama and Honduras, directly to or from Miami by working together with Lan Cargo, Cielos del Peru and other Central and South American airlines.
