Alitalia Cargo has launched a weekly freighter route between Milan Malpensa airport and Miami International Airport, its 10th weekly service to the United States.
The new trans-Atlantic route, which launched May 18, deploys an MD-11 freighter and will provide onward cargo connections to South America through an agreement with Centurion Air Cargo.
The deal with Miami-based Centurion will enable Italian shippers to reach key Latin American markets, including Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
Centurion operates a fleet of six DC-10 freighters flying to 16 destinations in Central and South America.
Alitalia Cargo operates five MD-11 freighters and generates annual revenues of around $600 million.
