Miami Air International was a Miami-based charter airline that operated passenger services for a number of different companies. It was founded back in 1990 and began operations with a Boeing 727.


While the airline has yet to release any official information in regards to the reason behind the bankruptcy, it is likely that the coronavirus outbreak contributed to the carrier’s demise, following the footsteps of UK regional airline, Flybe.
