As of January 17, Global Aviation Link, a Miami-based air consolidator, began running flights MIA - BOG - MIA roundtrip in response to a rise in demand for fresh cut flowers exported from Colombia. According to the Colombian Ministry of Commerce, sales abroad of Colombian flowers registered the highest figure ever in 2021 with a total of $1.7 million, an increase of 22.4 percent, in relation to 2020. Global Aviation Link (GAL) has decided to offer a convenient solution to this rising demand in air freight capacity for the flowers. It now offers four flights per week on the route between MIA and BOG roundtrip.
The flights will be available every week of the year, with the following details:
● Airplane: 767/300
● Capacity: 50 tons (able to be palletized)
● Commodities: perishables, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, regular/dry cargo, and dangerous goods
This past Valentine’s season, GAL moved 750 tons of cargo along the route, totaling about 3 million stems, says a company representative. GAL will provide additional flights during future peak seasons. To accommodate clients’ needs, GAL also offers regional charter flights as needed.
