Vic Karjian, CEO of Amerijet announced at the Flypharma Conference in Brussels the plan to start operating a direct cargo route between Miami and Brussels.
Amerijet operates a fleet of B767 Freighter aircraft serving a wide variety of destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Amerijet operates its own terminal at Miami International Airport and is known for its reliability and service with a strong customer focus. This new route marks an important step in the history of Amerijet, 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, 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 underserved 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.”
