Caribbean Airlines Cargo has developed a complete air and ground network. We have achieved this through dedicated and improved freighters services, frequent line flights and punctual interconnecting truck schedules. These alliances give us the opportunity to strengthen and expand our presence and allow us to access lucrative markets more effectively - Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver via Miami, are just a range of the destinations we offer.

Caribbean Airlines Cargo is the preferred carrier for the exportation of fish to outside the Caribbean. Twice a week we move at least 150,000 tonnes of fish to Miami, as far as Los Angeles and beyond.
