MidAmerica St. Louis Airport plans to add a second cargo flight from South America by the end of the year, Director Tim Cantwell said Wednesday. 

A year ago this month, the St. Clair County airport welcomed its first intercontinental air cargo flight with the arrivals of tons of fresh flowers from Bogotá, Colombia, through Miami-based Teqflor International Logistics. 

MidAmerica has been focusing on building cargo traffic after it lost the last of its passenger flights in January, when Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air canceled its semiweekly service to Las Vegas after ending another route to Florida in September 2008.
