Miami Getting New Flights To Three South American Cities, Including Cordoba, Argentina; Cargo Flight To Hong Kong

American Airlines has announced the addition of three new flights from Miami International Airport to South America over the coming year.

The three new routes are:

  • Cordoba, Argentina with a Boeing 767-300 beginning Apr. 2, 2019 (ticket sales start April 7)
  • Pereira, Colombia with an Airbus A319 beginning Dec. 20, 2018 (ticket sales start April 17)
  • Georgetown, Guyana with an  Airbus A319 beginning Dec. 20, 2018 (ticket sales start April 2)

In addition, American is increasing flights from Miami to Caracas and to Antigua.

MIA already has the most connections of any airport in the world to South America, including airfields that have little other international service. Pereira only has one other international flight (to Panama), while Cordoba doesn’t have any connections outside of South America except Panama. Georgetown is already served from Miami.

A new flight  to Asia is also being added next month.

Southern Air will fly a 777F from Miami to Hong Kong via Anchorage, beginning April 1.

There are now six airlines operating cargo flights from Miami to Asia. The others include: Asiana Airlines (Seoul); Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong); China Airlines (Taipei); Korean Air (Seoul); and Polar Air (Seoul).

How about a few more non-stops to SFO, LA and San Diego.

There are nine flights a day to LA between AA and DO, five to SFO between AA and UA, and AA has two to San Diego. Plus all three, along with Long Beach, have multiple dailies to FLL.

Why can’t one of those companies do a nonstop to Hong Kong with a refueling stop on the way for passengers from Miami? I flew Ethiopian Airways a couple times and they do a refuel in Rome between US and Addis… no big deal… nobody got off or on the plane…and much better than traveling a long way with a connection.

Because you can easily connect with little detour to Asia…

DFW, LAX are on the way.

Almost everything is on the way from Florida because you go primarily North to go to Asia. I typically fly through JFK. I find it a lot more convenient than LAX or SFO. Flying through California usually requires a domestic red eye on the return trip.

That said, I would love a direct flight. The shortest trip to Taiwan is 24+ hours. A direct flight would be 18 hours.

I’d still love an Asian non-stop but then again, Miami is really not an Asian friendly city.

Why connect if you can just do a refuel w/o deplaning..? so you can stroll for 2 hours through a ridiculous airport shopping mall to see all the same stores you see in every airport and waste time? if there are concerns airplanes can’t make it to asia w/ fuel, just refuel in alaska, better than jet lagged and staring at cartier and mcdonalds stores…

I wish Miami would bring back more of it’s flights to Brazil. They used to serve so many more cities. Now I have to connect through Rio. Who cares about Pereira or Cordoba?!

yeah – a flight to Salvador, Bahia would be great again… I think Brazil’s economy needs to pick up before that happens again.
