American Airlines Cargo has launched direct services to the Hungarian capital of Budapest from New York. The daily, non-stop B767-300 service will allow AA Cargo's customers to use a range of the carrier's services into and out of Budapest's Ferihegy Airport including, its Expedite, Confirmed and Priority products. Traffic is expected to be split evenly between inbound and outbound flights, with the movement of electronics and car parts expected to be key commodities ex-Hungary.
“This service opens up a new part of Europe for our customers, with connections via New York throughout the United States and Latin America,” said Tristan Koch, Managing Director of European Cargo Sales. “In addition, our network alliances in the region will open a vast new array of destinations to shippers in Hungary.”
The carrier has appointed Kales Budapest as its GSA for the country under General Manager Monika Nagy.
