Making Spirits Bright

Beginning in early October, American Airlines has been diligently transporting over 10 tonnes of sweet chestnuts from Rome’s Fiumicino Airport to JFK each day to prepare Americans for the quickly approaching holidays.

The sweet chestnuts originate from mountain harvesting in the Naples, Italy region and have a high American demand right now due to limited localized production options, according to a release this week from the company. Due to this increase in demand, efforts to transport the holiday classic kicked off earlier in the month of October and continues on strong, going on six weeks.  During a normal season, it usually lasts for only a couple of weeks.

“Whether its chestnuts roasting on the streets of New York or families preparing a traditional stuffing to accompany their Turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas, our team in Italy has worked hard with our shipper and forwarder partners to deliver record tonnages of chestnuts this year,” says Richard Hartmann, American’s Regional Cargo Sales Manager.

As the season of giving continues, American everywhere can be thankful for the hard working efforts of the American Airlines cargo team for supplying one of the most classical items enjoyed during this time of the year.
