Centurion Air Cargo operating as Centurion Cargo is an American cargo airline with its headquarters on the grounds of Miami International Airport, Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA at the Centurion Cargo Center.[1] It operates all-cargo services to Central America, South America, North America, and Europe, currently serving 20+ scheduled destinations.


The airline was established as Challenge Air Cargo in 1985 as a subsidiary of Challenge Air Transport. In 1986 the airline became independent of Challenge Air Transport. In July 1999 following the takeover of the scheduled business by United Parcel Service a new company was formed as Centurion Air Cargo to take over the air operating certificate of Challenge.[2]
