American Airlines Cargo includes US network in WebCargo and 7L Freight bookings
12 / 07 / 2022
American Airlines Cargo has started offering customers full access to its US network when booking on WebCargo and 7L Freight platforms.
The airline, which operates more than 5,000 daily departures from the US, said it now provides a larger network for flights in and out of the US on WebCargo than any other carrier.
WebCargo users can book on American’s US originating routes starting from July 12, with access to more than 100 international destinations.
Since late April, users have been able to book on American out of Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK, soon followed by the addition of France, Portugal and Switzerland. The airline currently operates more than 35 direct routes to the US from these markets.
“This inclusion of our US network is pivotal as we grow in the digital booking space and in our partnership with WebCargo,” said Roger Samways, vice president of commercial for American Airlines Cargo.
“It’s crucial to us at American that we are where our customers need us to be and that our network is positioned to best serve the industry. We are excited to see how our expanded presence on the WebCargo platform will enhance the way our customers can do business with us.”
Manel Galindo, chief executive of WebCargo by Freightos, said: “With a 10x increase in air cargo bookings conducted by US-based freight forwarders this year, it is clear that they share our unequivocal preference for digital air cargo. American Airlines Cargo has been an ideal partner and we’re proud to continue our global expansion with them across our WebCargo and 7L Freight platform.”
American now has more than 2,800 widebody flights a month available for general freight and expedite freight product bookings on the WebCargo platform. The airline said it also has plans to continue expanding its presence on WebCargo in the months to come.
Last month, American Airlines Cargo announced it would further digitalise its air cargo operations by deploying IBS Software’s latest iPartner Customer (iPC) solution to enable fast integration with WebCargo.
