Following the merger of American Airlines and US Airways nine months ago, American Airlines Cargo has announced that it will transition to accepting a single air waybill for all shipments starting 20 October.

Jim W. Butler, America Airlines Cargo president, in a letter to customers said: “Nine months ago, the merger between American Airlines and US Airways became official. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to restoring American as the greatest airline in the world. The cargo team has been working hard to plan for a seamless transition and I thank you for your patience and loyalty during this time.

“The objective of our integration has been to bring together the expertise, solutions and teams you’ve relied on from both cargo organisations into the industry’s most customer-focused airfreight partner.” The new booking designation starting from 20 October onwards for shipments with American will be ‘001’. Prior to 20 October booking designations will continue to use US Airways (037) and American Airlines (001).
