Status of MIami Air ?

Wed May 19, 2021 2:28 pm

I saw Miami Air doing a turn into SFB today using a/c N778MA. I am guessing probably proving runs to get started again. Any one have any info on this?
Turn left heading 080 contact departure

Miami Air went out of business. It's possible the aircraft was being transferred to a new owner.

World Atlantic bought the certificate and I assume they are trying to resurrect the operation. Seems to be a lot of shuffling of operating certificates lately!

Miami Air was sold to a new company owned by Tomas Romero, who also owns World Atlantic. The Miami Air DOT certificate was transferred to the new owner. One of the two 737s was operated by the former Miami Air. The airline is not operating yet.

World Atlantic might be trying to transition to the 737 NG. They have an MD-80 fleet now, but last call went out for parts long ago.

As for N778MA, is it owned by FI (and managed by BBAM)? Even though FI never operated the 737 NG, it did order 20 and this frame is a 737-808 frame, 08 being the FI Boeing code.
