American Airlines Cargo to fly long-haul widebody cargo-only aircraft to key locations
American Airlines Cargo will fly long-haul widebody passenger flights carrying cargo this week to locations including Auckland Airport (AKL), São Paulo International Airport (GRU) and Honolulu International Airport (HNL). The airline is thus continuing to operate international widebody service to key locations around the globe, serving as a vital partner for freight forwarders and supporting global trade in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
These flights are in addition to existing passenger flights which continue to operate daily between Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and London Heathrow (LHR), Miami International Airport (MIA) and LHR, and three times weekly between DFW and Narita International Airport (NRT).
American is also expanding its cargo capacity with more roundtrip flights between DFW and Frankfurt Airport (FRA) beginning March 26 – bringing a total of more than 40 widebody flights operating this week across the globe.
American’s network is augmented by its global trucking routes, offering additional opportunities for cargo capacity around the world.
“The air cargo industry plays a vital role in supporting the world’s economy and it’s more important than ever before that we continue to find solutions to serve our customers,” said Roger Samways, Vice President Cargo Sales.
On March 20, 2020 American deployed its first cargo-only flights since 1984 between DFW and FRA. Two Boeing 777-300 aircraft flew two round trips between DFW and FRA over the course of four days, transporting critical goods including medical supplies, mail for active US military, telecommunications equipment and electronics that will support people working from home, and e-commerce packages.
