American Airlines Cargo has begun offering widebody cargo service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Sao Paulo, Brazil (GRU).
Operating with a B777-200ER, the service provides customers with a fourth gateway to and from Sao Paulo. American claims to be the only airline to offer daily nonstop service on that route. Currently it provides service between Sao Paulo and Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami, New York's JFK International and LAX. AA Cargo expects automotive parts, equipment and infrastructure for mobile networks and international mail to be the primary exports from Asia into Brazil. Perishables, leather and aircraft parts are expected to be major exports.
