American launches new cargo service

November 21, 2013

Today, American Airlines Cargo begins offering widebody cargo service from Miami (MIA) to Milan, Italy (MXP); widebody service from Miami (MIA) to Curitiba, Brazil (CWB) and Porto Alegre, Brazil (POA); and narrowbody service from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) to Bogota, Colombia (BOG). Service departing Milan and Bogota begins Nov. 22.

These new additions are just another way American is growing its global network and giving customers more options for shipping.

MIA-MXP

  • American will offer the only daily non-stop service between Miami (MIA) and Milan-Malpensa (MXP).
  • In addition to American’s existing service between New York (JFK) and Milan-Malpensa (MXP), this service will provide customers with a second gateway to and from MXP.
  • Fashion and automotive are expected to be the primary types of traffic in both directions.
  • “This is an exciting and important trade lane for a number of our key customers,” said Tristan Koch, American’s managing director of cargo sales – EMEA. “We expect to have automotive components manufactured in Brazil that are destined for the European market via Miami, and in the opposite direction, there will be both high-end fashion and automotive goods heading for south Florida and beyond. We really see Miami as the gateway, as there is also a considerable market for ship spares which will originate out of Genoa and need to be taken to the U.S. for the winter cruise market, and that’s something our new service offering—with its early next-day arrival in Miami—is ideally placed to provide.”
  • “We’re confident American is well known to the freight community across northern Italy, and the addition of the Miami service will further enhance our reputation for an excellent range of freight services to and from the U.S.,” said Lamberto Laccisaglia, American’s cargo manager in Italy.
  • Daily widebody service schedule between MIA and MXP:
    • AA 206
      • Departs MIA at 5:55 p.m.
