Miami-based Centurion Air Cargo is apparently back in the air after it terminated its services between the US and Europe with its last flight, Miami to Amsterdam, back in September. The carrier has been struggling with legal problems including 11 lawsuits filed against it by Chemoil Corporation over what the fuel supplier claimed were US$12.9 million in unpaid fuel bills. In late December Centurion is said to have restarted operations with three of its MD-11 freighters with at least one service between Miami and Caracas.

 

The carrier had ambitious plans to add a new B747-8F by 2015 and by 2016 Centurion planned to add 10 B747-400Fs and 18 more MD-11Fs. In 2013, Centurion Cargo opened its brand new Centurion Cargo Center, located at the Miami International Airport. The facility comprises a 130,000 sqmincorporating a 51,000 sqm warehouse with both cold and dry storage facilities. Centurion Cargo Center is the largest privately owned, all cargo airline facility in North America
