AA Cargo calls in Santa’s little helpers

AA Cargo calls in Santa’s little helpers

Santa’s little helpers has been hard at work alongside American Airlines Cargo this year and, in addition to helping move presents around the world for the festive season, the team has been moving huge additional volumes of priority mail.

Although some people prefer sending e-greetings to spread yuletide cheer, many more are still opting for the traditional card in the mail.

In fact, American’s Dallas/Fort Worth team handles more holiday mail than any other station.

Members of the airline’s UK handling team at London Heathrow are seen handling purple sacks that identify priority mail destined for cities in the US and onward across the American Airlines network. Mail from northern Europe in the month leading up to Christmas is up more than 130 per cent compared to last year.
