Centurion Air Cargo is a cargo airline with its headquarters in Building 706 on the grounds of Miami International Airport in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA.[1] It operates all-cargo services to Central America and South America, serving 16 scheduled destinations. It specializes in carrying seafood, vegetables, flowers and horses to and from Latin America. Its main base is Miami International Airport.[2]



The airline was established in 1985. It was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Challenge Air Transport, but this connection was severed in 1986. In June 1999, United Parcel Service agreed to buy the assets of Challenge Air Cargo, excluding the company's name and air operator's certificate. In 2001, Challenge Air Cargo was renamed to 'Centurion Air Cargo'. Centurion Air Cargo was then formed in July 1999, taking over the operating certificate of Challenge Air Cargo[2].

After years of service, Centurion Air Cargo was purchased by AMC, and continues to operate successfully as a sister company to Cielos Airlines and Master Top Airlines.[citation needed]

In April 2010 it was announced Centurion Air Cargo would be attempting to take over some of the routes assets of struggling MatlinPatterson subsidiary Arrow Cargo. This acquisition and sale of Arrow Cargo would not include any provisions for the employees of the company according to the private equity firm's representatives.[1]

Boeing 707

During 1998 and 1999, Challenge Air Cargo received 3 Boeing 707-300Cs from OMEGA/Finova from Japan Airlines. Some were stored away after 2000.
