August 20, 2020: American Airlines has appointed Air Logistics Group as its Cargo General Sales Agent (GSA) for its operations in India.

The new GSA representation will bring added benefits to American’s Cargo customers as the airline continues to expand its cargo capacity and frequency between the two nations. In Winter 2021, American will launch its first passenger service from Seattle (SEA) to Bengaluru (BLR). The new route will connect the two major global business and technology hubs for the first time. American Airlines Cargo has served the Indian market with a GSA for more than two decades. The United States and India are two of the world’s largest exporters and importers of goods and freight.

Tim Isik, director cargo sales – Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “India is an important market for American’s cargo operations. As we prepare to launch our new Seattle to Bengaluru service in 2021, we are delighted to be strengthening our position in India through this exclusive partnership with Air Logistics Group.”

Shanna Abbott, GSA contracts manager, American Airlines Cargo, said, “India is a very important part of our worldwide network, with a high demand for both inbound and outbound cargo traffic such as pharmaceuticals, auto parts and fabrics. “Having Air Logistics Group represent us throughout India will enhance service for our customers who ship from key cities. A local presence is a sure-fire way for us to ensure that each customer’s needs are being met.”

Sakshi Gupta, country manager, Air Logistics Group, said, “We are excited to represent American Airlines’ Cargo in India. “India is a fast-growing and strategic market for American and we are looking forward to promoting and strengthening the exports and imports trade between the two nations through our skills and expertise.”

In recent months, American has been increasing its cargo schedule to move vital cargo supplies to reach communities in need. This September, its cargo-only schedule will total more than 1,000 flights serving 32 cities across the globe.
