American Airlines Cargo (AA Cargo) secured the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre as one of the first customers for its newly launched cargo service from Moscow.

With the unique transportation needs of the internationally renowned production company, AA Cargo said it was retained to deliver the consignment from the St.Petersburg Ballet Theatre to Sao Paolo,Brazil for the troupe’s debut performance of “The Sleeping Beauty.”

In less than 72 hours, AA Cargo facilitated the shipment, which departed from Russia’s Domodedovo International Airport via American’s nonstop Boeing 777 service to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD). The Ballet’s cargo was transported through the airline’s key US gateways including New York and Miami to reach the final destination in Sao Paolo, Brazil in time for the premiere performance at the Teatro Nacional.

AA Cargo is offering its nonstop Moscow – Chicago scheduled service six days a week.
