American Airlines Cargo to Utilize New Service Between DFW and Dublin
Starting this summer, American Airlines will offer a new nonstop flight from Dublin to Dallas Fort Worth, directly connecting the two for the first time in the history of the world’s largest carrier.
The seasonal flight, which will operate from June 7 through Sept. 28 of this year, will be flown on cargo-friendly, fuel-efficient Boeing 787-9 aircraft. That should make it a welcome addition for the cargo community wishing to serve Texas, the second largest importing state in America, where the manufacturing sector is projected to continue growing in the coming years.
Customers with a diverse range of commodities are already expressing interest in the flight, according to American Airlines, which adds potential commodities including computer parts, medical devices, machinery, oil industry equipment, aviation parts and pharmaceuticals.
“This first, direct, scheduled service from Ireland to Texas will open up a number of new markets for both Irish and multinational exporters with freight destined for Dallas and beyond,” says Andy Cornwell, regional manager of AA Cargo-Northern Europe.
American also offers flights from Dublin to Charlotte, Chicago O’Hare and Philadelphia, as well as seasonal service from Shannon to Philly.
