American Airlines Cargo expands seasonal cargo service out of Ireland
July 02, 2016: American Airlines Cargo will operate its busiest ever summer schedule to and from Ireland in 2016.
From Dublin (DUB), American will fly nonstop to Chicago (ORD), Charlotte (CLT), Philadelphia (PHL) and New York (JFK); from Shannon (SNN), American offers direct service to Philadelphia (PHL).
Cargo service will operate between DUB and ORD, PHL and CLT from now until the end of October, using the Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which offers up to 33,000 pounds (15,000 kilograms) of cargo capacity.
The DUB to JFK and SNN to PHL services will operate on the Boeing 757 until the end of October and September, respectively.
With morning departures out of DUB and SNN, shipments moved out of Ireland will all arrive in the US before early afternoon on the same working day.
“This great range of direct summer services is a real bonus for the freight community here,” said Ian McCool, managing director of American’s Irish Cargo GSSA, IAM.
“We’ve already seen a dramatic increase in demand for temperature-controlled products since the launch of ExpediteTC. Then, with the opening of the airline’s state-of-the-art pharmaceutical facility in Philadelphia last year, there has been an even greater requirement for such services, and I believe these summer routes will prove extremely popular.”
At DUB, American also has access to new temperature-controlled areas at one of the most modern facilities of its kind in Ireland.
Andy Cornwell, American Airlines Cargo’s regional sales manager of Northern Europe, added, “These routes are great additions to our ever-expanding network. The movement of time-sensitive products for the pharmaceutical industry in Ireland, combined with the correct facilities to handle them, are an expanding part of our business. These flights to key hubs show our commitment to meeting the needs of the cargo community in this region.”
