By: American Airlines Cargo May 28, 2014
American Airlines Cargo has beefed up its Europe service to accommodate seasonal requirements.
Beginning May 9, the carrier is offering daily nonstop service between Chicago O’Hare and Dublin, Ireland, as well as between New York Kennedy and Rome. Both routes will be operated with a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, with the augmented service to continue through Oct. 25. Exports from Dublin are expected to include pharmaceuticals, medical products, aircraft parts and electronics, with eastbound exports consisting mostly of machine parts, computer parts, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and textiles. From Rome, exports will include high-end fashion, textiles and automotive parts; pharmaceuticals should be the primary export eastbound, the carrier said. In addition, American has upgraded its widebody service between Dallas/Forth Worth and Paris to a B777-200 aircraft. Service with a B767-300 aircraft will resume on Aug. 18.
