Airglades International Airport to Open State-of-the-Art Floral Cargo, Full Service Logistic Centers

The Airglades International Airport, located 85 miles north of Miami, is announcing the development of a new, state-of-the-art perishable cargo airport and full-service logistics center, benefitting international and domestic plant and flower growers, importers, e-commerce fulfillment centers, production providers, wholesalers, retailers, carriers, allied organizations, and the general public.

Known as AIA, the new Airglades facility will boast a new 10,000-foot runway and provide services for international floral importers and domestic growers under one roof. In 2019, AIA received the FAA Record of Decision and in 2020, Airglades Airport was designated a US Customs Port of Entry Inspection Facility.

Located in Hendry County, South Florida, this new facility allows businesses in the floriculture sector more expansion and growth opportunities by providing:

A Custom-Built Cargo-Dedicated Logistics Hub & Airport

Facility Location in Uncongested Area

Lower and Predictable Costs

Faster and Fresher Product to Retailers and End Floral Consumers

“The supply chain of Florida’s Heartland is no longer a secret, with some of the most innovative companies coming here to develop optimal logistic networks to move cargo in and out of the region, while also creating untethered growth opportunities for the future," said AIA Chief Executive Officer Malcom Wade. "This project presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for stakeholders in the floriculture industry to reshape the US supply chain for future growth.”
