From Miami and New York to Israel
American Airlines Cargo is launching transatlantic services from New York JFK (daily) and Miami (thrice-weekly) to Tel Aviv (Israel). Both are operated with B77-200 equipment and will initially carry around 15 t of freight per flight, depending on passenger load factors.
Tim Isik, managing director cargo sales – Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia: "There is a real market demand, not only for service to our hubs, but also for connections to onward destinations. We’re excited to keep the world’s goods moving with the addition of these routes and provide more connections for customers."
Starting 31 October, American will also launch new thrice-weekly, B787-9 service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Tel Aviv. The airline’s GSA sales support in Israel is its long-term partner, AD Aviation International Services. (ah)
