MIAMI — Canadian carrier First Air announced charter passenger flights to Miami International Airport from Hamilton International Airport, Ontario, starting on February 4, 2017, on behalf of Celebrity Cruises.

First Air will utilize a 136-seat Boeing 737-400 for the weekly charter service.

According to Miami International Airport, Canada is the airport’s eighth busiest international market, with over 765,000 passengers per year. To date, Miami service to Canada includes flights to Montreal by American Airlines and Air Canada, and to Toronto with American Airlines, Air Canada and Westjet.

“We welcome First Air to our growing roster of airlines, and look forward to welcoming the hundreds of cruise passengers they will bring to MIA,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. Gonzalez. “In addition to having more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other U.S. airport, having the world’s busiest cruise port in our community also continues to attract more and more airlines to our airport.”

Before the end of 2016, Miami will welcome KLM with three weekly flights from Amsterdam, together with Meridiana, which will launch two weekly flights to Milan in December. Also, Icelandic carrier WOW Air has announced plans to start services from Keflavik to Miami in April 2017.
