American Airlines Cargo has expanded its presence on booking portal WebCargo with the addition of flights from 28 more countries.

The carrier said the extra countries are spread across Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.

“Following Europe and the US, this regional rollout onto WebCargo now includes a significant portion of the carrier’s global network, with plans to continue expanding on the platform in the coming months,” the carrier said.

American said it currently operates more than 5,000 monthly flights out of these regions, including widebody flights out of Buenos Aires (EZE), Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Santiago (SCL) and São Paulo (GRU) to US hubs.

Lorena Sandoval, sales director – Florida, Mexico, Caribbean and Latin America for American Airlines Cargo, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer even more of our vast global network on the WebCargo platform as users can now enjoy direct connections to the US.

“Our priority is always to meet the unique needs of our customers, and we look forward to seeing how our growing partnership with WebCargo will continue to benefit the cargo industry.”

Camilo Garcia, global vice president business development at WebCargo, added: “The Americas and Caribbean play an absolutely vital role in global trade, particularly leading up to peak season, and we are confident that the thousands of forwarding offices in these regions on WebCargo and 7LFreight (airfreight rate quote provider) will benefit.”
