Additionally, German customers will see a special limited-time service in November between Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and CLT to connect Germany to the important production and consumption centers in the U.S. South East.
“These winter services are tremendous news for American Airlines customers in the UK and Europe where capacity to the U.S. and beyond has proved to be very tight over the last eighteen months,” says Tim Isik, Sales Director – EMEA & APAC for American Airlines Cargo.
“We have really strong demand for all kinds of cargo including automotive parts, perishables like fresh salmon and flowers, and life science products like pharmaceuticals. Our European customers are continuing to take advantage of our extensive trucking network into the U.K. from where they can take advantage of our growing number of options for direct flights to our critical markets in the U.S.”
All routes will be operated using Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-300 or Boeing 787-9 aircraft. November flights from LHR are listed below and are also at aacargo.com:
