American Airlines Cargo has launched Amsterdam – Dallas Fort Worth services as well as adding a number of seasonal routes to other European destinations.
The new service to Europe’s third largest cargo airport started on 5 May using a Boeing 767-300, and American says it will offer customers in the Benelux region new opportunities to send shipments, notably pharma, to the US and beyond.
American Airlines Cargo regional managing director sales – EMEA and ISC, Tristan Koch says: “This is our biggest-ever summer schedule across Europe and shows our commitment to offering Cargo customers the widest possible access to our global network.”
“The customers will benefit from more points of access to the network and additional capacity to move their shipments to the U.S. and beyond.”
American will also operate a reconfigured Boeing 777-200 between Dallas Fort Worth and Rome Fiumicino as the airline looks to increase traffic from Italy and Mexico and South America, complementing existing Rome – New York JFK services.
Capacity to Ireland will be significantly increased with Dublin – Charlotte, Dublin – Chicago O’Hare and Shannon – Philadelphia flights, in addition to year-round Airbus A330-200 Dublin – Philadelphia services.
The Dublin – Chicago route will be operated with a Boeing 767-300 until 5 August when it will be upgraded to a Boeing 787-800.
American will also operate Boeing 787-800 flights between Barcelona and Chicago O’Hare.
