American Airlines Cargo has shown off its new facility at Milan Malpensa Airport, with customers from across Italy viewing the 53,000 square foot building.
The building handles the airline’s daily flights to New York and Miami and growing cargo volumes from northern Italy have increased customer demand for direct services out of Italy.
Frequently shipped goods from Milan include automotive parts, fashion and pharmaceuticals.
On its opening day, customers joined American Airlines’ regional cargo sales manager, Richard Hartmann and his team for a tour of the building, located near the old location.
Hartmann says: “It’s a real testament to the strength of our brand in Italy that customers from as far away as Venice, Rome and Florence took time out of their busy schedules to come and see what additional space and opportunities the new warehouse can offer them.”
Customers were given a complete tour of the facility, operated by WFS to showcase new ground support equipment, a full range of temperature control spaces, and racking to store pallets and containers.
