American Airlines recently expanded its global cargo routes, scheduling more than 400 widebody flights worldwide beginning August 5. At PHL, American added cargo-only flights to Amsterdam (three times weekly), resumed cargo service to Zurich (twice weekly) and extended the twice weekly cargo flights to Rome, Milan and Frankfurt that began June 27.
“We are thrilled that American has once again increased its cargo flights at PHL, taking advantage of the airport’s prime East Coast location,” said Stephanie Wear, PHL’s Director of Air Service Development and Cargo Services. “Since May, American has continually added more cargo flights to its PHL roster, making the airport a key hub for medical and pharmaceutical companies transporting supplies and medicine critical to fighting COVID-19.”
American operates a 25,000 square foot temperature-controlled cargo facility at PHL. This is the first year since 1984 that American is operating cargo-only flights to and from Philadelphia.
