AA Cargo delivers record tonnages of chestnuts for Thanksgiving and Christmas
Nov 27, 2018: For the last six weeks, American Airlines Cargo (AA Cargo) has been carrying more than 10 tonnes of sweet chestnuts a day between Rome's Fiumicino Airport and New York JFK to ensure customers in the US can enjoy the traditional treats during the festive season.
The airline informed through a statement, “Usually, the seasonal traffic occurs for a couple of weeks in mid-October but with the growing demand, this year's season has already been running for six weeks and is set to extend into November.”
These chestnuts which are harvested in the mountains are used in the preparation of soups, desserts, flours and creams. The chestnuts originate in the Campania region of south west Italy around Naples.
They are placed into jute sacks before being delivered into American Airlines Cargo facility in Rome. The jute sacks are fixed onto wooden pallets and need to be kept away from direct sunlight while in transit before being loaded onto American's daily, B777-200 flights from the Italian capital to New York.
