Record breaking quarter for American Airlines

Driven by nearly 350 million pounds (158 million kilograms) of freight, up from 318 million (144 million kilograms) the same time last year, American Airlines Cargo achieved record-setting growth in the second quarter, while also posting a record month in June.

Several key trends contributed to the record month and quarter. E-Commerce related movements supported significant growth across the network, particularly out of Asia, Europe and Brazil, while pharmaceuticals, fruit and flowers were the largest growing commodities throughout the timeframe.

Other factors driving the success of the second quarter included:trucking volume increased 13.6 percent year over year, flower traffic from Europe was up-especially from France and Holland, several high-visibility large project shipments, such as the movement of more than 425 tons (385 tonnes) of engine and auto accessories from Japan-the equivalent of 1,800 massive V8 engines, etc.
