MIA on pace for record year in cargo

At 1.9 million tons of cargo through October, Miami International Airport is on pace to surpass its all-time annual record of 2.3 million tons. September and October were record-setting months, as more than 200,000 tons of freight moved through MIA each month.

Year-to-date, MIA has also served a record 52,504 cargo-only flights, which is an increase of 7,000 flights over last year. As the first airport in the Western Hemisphere and only the second in the world to be designated by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as a pharmaceutical freight hub and industry leader in the transport of pharmaceuticals and vaccines, MIA is prepared to be a leading air cargo hub for COVID-19 vaccines.
