Cargo Accelerates Miami Comeback

Cargo Accelerates Miami Comeback

     As reported worldwide Hurricane Irma heavily impacted Miami International Airport (MIA) this past weekend.
     MIA is a major hub in the American Airlines system.
     “Because keeping the safety of our employees, passengers and your cargo remains our top priority, we are in the process of resuming a limited schedule, “AA writes.
     “On Monday (September 11) we flew teams from DFW and ORD to assist our team members in MIA, as getting operations at the key MIA gateway up and running to meeting the needs of our customers is now job one at AA Cargo.
     “We are working closely with our partners at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), TSA and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), evaluating and gauging the situation on an ongoing basis to determine when it’s safe to resume full operations.
     “Currently AA Cargo is prioritizing freight shipments in our MIA facility to move consignments out as soon as possible.
     “As example because of the high level of care we put into TLC and animal consignments, we have embargoed accepting those shipments, until we return to full operations.
     “In the meantime, we’re staying in touch with our customers with consistent updates via email and within the alerts section of www.aacargo.com.
     “Among other relief efforts, American is providing the highest level of support to the victims of Hurricane Irma through the American Red Cross.”
