American Airlines Cargo has extended its international reach with the appointment of general sales agents (GSA) in Croatia, Slovenia and Kuwait.
Specialist Central Eastern Europe and Balkans company R-BAG will represent American Airlines Cargo from Ljubljana Airport in Slovenia and at Zagreb International Airport in Croatia.
Al Rashed International Group will represent the airline as the GSA for Kuwait, operating from its base in Kuwait City.
American Airlines Cargo regional sales manager, Richard Hartmann describes the companies as “great new additions” to the airlines GSA network.
He says: “Both are highly experienced companies with a proven track record in working with exports to the USA. Not only are they looking to send cargo to the US, but they believe there is considerable demand for service to onward destinations across our network in Latin America.”
From Croatia and Slovenia, cargo will be trucked to European destinations served by American Airlines flights and interline solutions for express cargo.
Commodities from the two countries will include pharmaceutical shipments and spare parts.
Out of Kuwait, widebody interline agreements into Europe to London’s Heathrow Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, Madrid-Barajas Airport and Rome Fiumicino Airport will connect with American’s services to the US and beyond.
