Following the successful merger with US Airways, and the subsequent increase in the size of its operations in mainland Europe over the last year, American Airlines (AA) Cargo has appointed Gisela Schork to the position of regional sales manager – Cargo, Germany and Switzerland – with immediate effect.

“Germany is the biggest export market in mainland Europe, so I am looking forward to selling an even greater range of both services and destinations to customers in my region,” said Schork. “Many are not aware of the scope of destinations American can now offer them, not just in the United States, but beyond to Central and South America.”
 

One of the results of the expanded global network is the increased number of online destinations the carrier now serves in Europe. Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf in Germany plus Zurich in Switzerland all now have daily services to key US gateways. In addition to AA’s 42 flights per week it also offers trucked services from 10 German and four Swiss airports to connect with its flights, she added.
 

Schork is a well-known figure in the German airfreight market having joined American in 1989 and has held a number of positions within the airline from inside sales through to cargo manager. She reports to the managing director of sales – Cargo, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Tristan Koch.
