Florida West International Airways (FWIA) was a private cargo airline that operated from 1981 to 1991. It was based in Miami, Florida, and primarily focused on transporting freight between the United States and Latin America. The airline's fleet consisted of various cargo aircraft, including Boeing 707 and McDonnell Douglas DC-10.
FWIA played a crucial role in transporting goods such as electronics, apparel, and perishable items between the US and Latin America, serving countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, and Honduras. The airline had a reputation for its reliable and efficient cargo services, catering to the growing demand for trade and transportation in the region during the 1980s.
However, in 1991, FWIA faced financial difficulties and was eventually forced to cease its operations. The airline's closure was attributed to a combination of factors, including a decline in cargo demands and increased competition from other cargo carriers.
