April 07, 2015: American Airlines Cargo has introduced three new mainland European cities to its summer schedule for 2015. Athens, Lisbon and Venice have all joined the network of the world's largest airline.
Cargo service between Lisbon and Philadelphia as well as Venice and Philadelphia commenced on March 29. Service between the Greek capital, Athens and Philadelphia will start on April 15. These expanded service points will provide customers with new direct options for shipping cargo with the same great service they've come to know and expect from American.
Lisbon and Athens will be served using a B757 aircraft, and Venice will see an Airbus A330-300.
"These are three great additions to our ever-expanding network. Two new capital city links with the eastern seaboard of the U.S. provide tremendous business opportunities for small-sized, time-sensitive items over the summer months while the fashion community in Venice and the surrounding area now have direct service to the USA from their region", said Tristan Koch, Managing Director Cargo Sales in the region with American.
