Urgent beer shipment flown to Texas for Saint Patrick’s Day


Fine quality Irish beer will be flowing for Saint Patrick’s Day after American Airlines Cargo’s Irish GSA helped with the delivery of 13,600 kilos of beer to Texas.

IAM was in charge of moving the shipment, which were collected in Ireland and delivered by truck to American’s London Heathrow Airport facility.

The barrels were prepared for flight on a Boeing 777-300 bound for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

After the aircraft landed in DFW, a truck connection was organised so that the beer could be on-forwarded to Houston in time for Saint Patrick’s Day on 17 March.
