American Airlines Cargo has furthered enhanced its transatlantic services for freight customers with the launch of flights from JFK and Miami International Airport to Ben Gurion Airport (TLV).
Daily, year-round service between New York and the coastal city of Tel Aviv will be operated on a B777-200 aircraft, and the three-times weekly route between Miami and Tel Aviv will also be flown using a B777-200 aircraft.
Flights will initially carry around 15 tons of freight per flight and will depend on passenger load factors.
“It’s exciting to have cargo operations to and from Tel Aviv again,” said Tim Isik, managing director cargo sales, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia for American Airlines Cargo.
“There is a real market demand, not only for service to our hubs in New York and Miami, but also for connections to onward destinations.
“We’re excited to keep the world’s goods moving with the addition of these routes and provide more connections for customers.”
Starting Oct. 31, 2021, American will also launch new three-times weekly service between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and TLV on Boeing 787-9.
