American Airlines Cargo offers more summer capacity with increased service on key routes

American Airlines Cargo has announced its summer schedule, with an increase of more than 400 widebody flights per month compared to summer 2022.

As the carrier prepares for the peak season, new routes and frequencies starting this spring will service routes between the US and Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. At the height of the summer peak, the airline said it would operate more than 160 international widebody flights per day.

From Europe, American will offer a new service from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and a returning service from Frankfurt Airport to Charlotte Douglas International Airport, as well as from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle Tacoma International Airport. All these services will be provided on Boeing 777-200 widebody aircraft.

Heathrow will experience the most service increases, with daily flights increasing to 26 per day with direct connections to key US cities.

“We’re delighted to offer significantly more capacity this summer with increased service on key routes. This not only allows us to say ‘yes’ more frequently to our customers, but also enables us to provide increased connection opportunities to flow freight across our global network,” said Roger Samways, vice president commercial for American Airlines Cargo. “From both a passenger and cargo perspective, this expansive schedule will help us serve our customers even more effectively this summer.”

American is also expanding service in the Latin America and Asia Pacific regions, with new service to Santiago International Airport and Tokyo Haneda Airport from Dallas Fort Worth, and to Haneda and Sydney Airport from Los Angeles.
