American Airlines - This is why we fly


From American Airlines, “We fly to bring hope. We fly to bring comfort. We fly because masks need to get to medical professionals and letters need to get to grandparents. We fly to keep the world moving.


“We fly for the same reason we always have and always will: you. You are why we fly. We look forward to welcoming you onboard when the time is right.” which is best illustrated in AA’s video HERE”.


In the meantime, American Airlines is transporting cargo to US & beyond and is providing more than 5.5 million pounds of capacity to transport critical goods each week between the US and Dublin, the rest of Europe, Asia and Latin America.


These flights will help transport life-saving medical supplies and materials, including PPE and pharmaceuticals. Other essential goods on these flights will include manufacturing and automotive equipment, fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, mail and electronics.


Rick Elieson, President of Cargo and VP of International Operations said, “I take immense pride in all the ways our airline and our industry are responding to make a difference when the world needs us most”.
