Arrow Air, the largest single cargo shipper at Miami International Airport, is ceasing operations after 57 years in South Florida, effective immediately.

“Like many companies in our industry, Arrow Air has experienced significant operating losses as a result of increasing operating costs and declining revenues. The decision to wind down the company’s schedule service operations was a difficult one,” the company said in a news release. “This decision was not made lightly, and was a last resort after the company exhaustively searched for other options, including financing or a sale of the business.”



Best of luck to all of this affected by this turn of events. That's a lot of lift to South America that is now available

Hardly a shock, as they have been hit or miss for a while and actually informed employees and State about a possible shut down 2-mos ago.
Arrow Air May Shutdown; Centurion Absorb Fleet (by LAXintl Apr 13 2010 in Civil Aviation)

Anyhow the region has no lack of 2nd rate cargo operators, so one less likely won't be missed.

Anyone know if they are might take over some planes/or routes? This will help some cargo airlines in MIA guess it matters who wants to try or has the cash to try.

I always liked Arrow Air too bad this happened, but thats the aviation industry for you.

LAN Cargo will no doubt increase cargo flights, (which they have been doing) from it's MIA Headquarters in order to fill the void. LAN Cargo is scheduled to take delivery of another B763F by the third quarter of this year.

yeah, except FedEx and UPS don't fly to the places Arrow was going out of MIA. And Amerijet can't haul the odd stuff that Arrow did with the DC10s and the MD11s from World.

There are many places all go to. And Centurion is the logical replacement and the logical company to buy some of the assets for cheap. Maybe a few 757s

Somehow, I'm not surprised. Every time I saw Arrow Air I saw a small cargo airline that will eventually be forced to closed by high costs. Lo and behold.

Their green and blue colors looked beautiful on the DC10, and especially on the old -8s. They'll be missed over the Miami skies. Good luck to the former employees.

More than likely Centurion, LAN, and Tampa Cargo are expected to take over the loads based on the routes commonality.

Wow. Another M-P airline down the tubes, following their disasterous takeover and shutdown of ATA. Let's hope that World and North American are faring better. I suspect that they are making money, but now there will be a need to market some MD11 freighter time.

   I very much agree. Have you seen this one guy's videos of a few Arrow Air DC10s and 757s on FlightLevel350? If I find them, I'll put them up. I'm sure they aren't hard to find, I'm just not available at the moment to do so.

This is indeed sad news. I wonder what will happen to the A330F's they were supposed to get, Southern maybe? I can also see LAN Cargo, Tampa and Centurion pick up the capacity left behind by Arrow Air. All the best to the Arrow Air employees in finding a new job!!!

The 330F's were ordered by Matlin Patterson which owns World and North American. The 330F's will be going to one of those carriers

You know they will or have. Arrow may have tried to sell them to keep the company afloat. Anyone know the origin of the Arrow 757s?

LAN Cargo currently has both a B763F and B777F scheduled for delivery soon. They will consolidate some routes that both Arrow and LAN Cargo operate; plus LAN Cargo may soon operate some flights into the other Caribbean destinations like SDQ and POS.

As stated here in Canada we have different memories of Arrow. We also remember the 256 people who died in a crash at Gander that I thought might have spelled then end of Arrow but they lived on. How many people worked at Arrow at the end? I hope that they will find their way to a more prosperous future.

I don't think the Arrow Air that just shut down had any direct relationship with the earlier Arrow Air involved in that accident, after their takeover by Fine Air and the various bankruptcies and reorganizations.
