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 statement said “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.”
“The combination of our networks is only the beginning of many exciting changes built around your needs. With initiatives like e-freight, a new state-of-the-art pharmaceutical facility in Philadelphia, and 70 new widebody and hundreds of narrowbody aircraft on the way, we are modernising the cargo business with you in mind,” said Butler.
