American Airlines Cargo continues Route Expansion


American Airlines Cargo has further expanded its international network by introducing service to New Delhi, starting on Nov.12, 2021.

American marks its return to the Indian capital city with a daily service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). This expansion will be followed by daily service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru (BLR) in early 2022, linking two critical global technology markets with the US and beyond.

The New Delhi service will operate using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, the largest widebody in American’s fleet. The freight forwarder community in India is eager to support the launch of this international service that will connect many commodities, such as leather products, textiles, ready-made garments, pharmaceuticals, machinery, and technology parts with destinations worldwide via JFK.

“India is a really exciting market for our cargo business, and we are delighted to be returning to these key destinations. In addition, there has long been a demand from our customers in the region for a direct link with New York, and we anticipate strong support for the service,” said Tim Isik, Sales Director – EMEA & APAC for American Airlines Cargo.

The company’s GSSA in India is Air Logistics, selling outbound cargo capacity from DEL to JFK.

“Recent capacity constraints to the US have created a huge demand for air cargo capacity ex-India, and at such times when a stimulus is needed to reinvigorate, recharge and revive our economies, this new service is a huge boost. We are ecstatic that the two largest production powerhouses of the world are on the cusp of being better connected through this new service,” said Sakshi Gupta, Country Manager India – Air Logistics Group.

This will be the first time American has served the country since 2012.
