    Southern Air is to become the sixth airline at Miami International Airport to operate cargo flights to Asia with the launch of weekly services to Hong Kong.

    The wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Air will operate Boeing 777 Freighter services from Miami to Hong Kong via Anchorage from 1 April.

    The other airlines operating cargo flights from Miami to Asia are Asiana Airlines, Korean Air and Polar Air all flying to Seoul, Cathay Pacific flies to Hong Kong and China Airlines goes to Taipei.

    Returning from a week long business development mission in China and Japan, Miami-Dade Aviation director, Lester Sola commented: “We are thrilled to add Southern Air to our growing route network in Asia. As the busiest U.S. airport for international freight, it is especially gratifying to welcome additional cargo service from Hong Kong, the world’s busiest freight airport.”

    Hong Kong is Miami airport’s fourth largest trade market in Asia, responsible for more than $500 million in freight annually.

    In 2017, Miami’s trade with Asia was valued at $7.8 billion, a 16 per cent increase from $6.7 billion in 2016.

    Airfreight rates increased in February compared with January for only the second time in the last six years.

    The latest figures from analyst Drewry's Sea and Air Shipper Insight report show that average rates on 28 major east-west routes increased to $2.84 per kg in February compared with $2.76 per kg in January.

    Rates for February were also up on last year when they stood at $2.48 per kg - a 14.6% year on year increase.

    “Drewry’s East-West Airfreight Price Index inched up by 3% in February to reach $2.84 per kg. This was only the second time in six years the index has increased month-on-month in February, indicative of the underlying strength of the market," the analyst said.

    "Drewry expects the index to soften in March, although it should remain above the comparable 2017 level as a result of strong demand.”

    Doncaster Sheffield Airport is aiming to increase cargo operations to 70,000 tonnes per year by 2037 as it unveils its 20-year masterplan.

    The DSA Vision Plan sees the creation of an Aerotropolis in the Sheffield City region with the airport’s 1,600-acre site becoming a central hub.

    It says the airport city would help transform the North of England, creating 73,000 jobs for the Sheffield city region and provide advanced manufacturing, logistics and aviation led innovation opportunities.

    Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones says: “Doncaster Sheffield Airport is a superbly located international gateway to the north. It is already experiencing significant growth, driving job creation and delivering new economic activity.

    “Most importantly, it has huge additional potential and can play a major role in the future transport and economic ambitions of the north as set out in its Vision and Masterplan.”

    Transport for the North strategy director, Jonathan Spruce says: “Doncaster Sheffield Airport’s Vision would see it unlock significant passenger and cargo capacity and could create a major economic cluster, supporting the transformation of the North of England economy.

    “We are currently consulting on our draft Strategic Transport Plan for the North which identifies DSA as a key economic centre and we recognise the need for enhanced rail access to DSA.”

    The airport has the ability to handle up to 250,000 tonnes of cargo per year, with the Aero Centre Yorkshire able to provide 5.5 million square feet of airside and landside cargo, logistics, distribution and manufacturing facilities.

    DSA says there are a number of drivers behind its cargo ambitions including major integrators and scheduled operators looking to expand capacity; new entrants into the air express market increasing pressure on airport capacity for European networks and trans-Atlantic connectivity; rationalisation of freighter fleets; and the continuing capacity squeeze at major airports across the UK and Europe impacting cargo operations.
