“These summer services are great news for American Airlines customers across Europe where capacity to the U.S. is gradually getting back to normal following the pandemic,” says Andy Cornwell, Regional Cargo Sales Manager, Northern Europe.

“We continue to see strong demand for all kinds of cargo including automotive parts, perishables and life science products including pharmaceuticals. With the number of flights growing month on month our European customers are continuing to take advantage of our extensive trucking network to send freight on the direct flights which best suit their needs. They can also benefit from the comprehensive onward network we offer from our US hubs.”

As of April 25, 2022, WebCargo (a Freightos Company) users based in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the U.K. can search and book direct flights to the U.S. and beyond on American Airlines Cargo. The carrier plans to expand this access in the coming months on the WebCargo platform.
