New cargo service.

Emerald cargo, a subsidiary of Emerald Express Charters, will inaugurate air cargo service from San Juan to the Caribbean Aug. 1, reports Caribbean Business (June 11, 2008).. "The company will invest about US$750,000 to initiate operations, which will include operating a Russian manufactured Antonov-26 aircraft. It plans to put a second Antonov-26 into service in October, involving additional investment of US$190,000 and double air cargo capacity," said general manager Elsie Adames. Recently, there have been announcements of flight reductions by commercial airlines serving the Puerto Rico market, which implies a reduction in air cargo capacity, something Adames sees as an opportunity for Emerald to grow. Emerald has provided charter services to Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and Puerto Plata and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. In the months to come, Emerald will expand operations for passenger flights between Miami and Nassau in the Bahamas, Adames said.
