“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.

“They can also benefit from the comprehensive onward network we offer from our US hubs.”
