Miami, 8 May 2020 – The president and CEO of Miami Air International, Kurt Kamrad, today wrote a personal letter to all employees of Miami Air International advising them that today was the last day of the airline’s operation.
Citing it as one of the saddest days of his life after his fathers passing two years ago he continues to say that a court hearing today decided the carriers destiny. Kamrad notes that despite a great deal of effort over several weeks, including discussions with numerous transaction partners, they had not received a viable proposal to acquire the assets of Miami Air International.
Miami Air International operated for 29 years and specialised in VIP and Military charters based in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. They had as recently as New Years Day 2020 operated a series of military charters out of the Middle East carrying over 4000 troops within a 72 hour time period. One of their final missions was working with Reva Air Ambulance to become one of the first US airlines to transport COVID-19 passengers on repatriation flights.
