American Airlines Cargo broke multiple performance, volume and revenue records in 2018, finishing the year with more than $1 billion in revenue for the first time in history.
The airline moved record volumes of freight and mail in 2018, handling two billion pounds, as well as achieving history-breaking Flown as Booked numbers.
New routes, strategic capacity planning and team work across the organisation led to the best annual performance numbers recorded in the airline’s history.
David Vance, VP operations at American Airlines Cargo says: “Our Operations team set all-time performance records, while moving record volumes of freight and mail across our system this year, reaching our typical peak fall volumes month after month. It’s impressive to say the least and makes me very proud to lead Cargo Operations.”
Rick Elieson, president of American Airlines Cargo says: “We’ve had an incredible year. We set out to break records and did just that. We achieved a major revenue milestone, but more importantly, our teams handled record volume and still delivered the best operational performance in the history of our company. Thanks to the daily effort of every single team member in this organisation, 2018 was definitely a historic year.”
