The Miami-Dade Aviation Department and the Civil Aviation Authority of Paraguay last week officially signed a Sister Airports agreement between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Asunción Silvio Pettirossi International Airport (ASU), establishing a commitment by both airports to assist each other in improving their passenger and cargo operations.
The agreement calls for the two airports to exchange information regarding their passenger and cargo operations, planned infrastructure developments, and air service development and general marketing research. The aim of the commitment is to increase trade, business, tourism and cultural relations between South Florida and Paraguay.
“This agreement opens an exciting new chapter in our air service connections with Paraguay,” said Lester Sola, MIA director and CEO. “We look forward to building on our recently established passenger route and our long-standing cargo service with the Asunción Airport, to see both of our regions have even more prosperous trade and tourism industries.”
