American Airlines, is offering a new nonstop B787-9 service from Dublin (DUB) to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) starting this upcoming summer season, directly connecting the two cities for the first time in the airline’s history. The seasonal flight will operate 7 June 2019, through 28 September 2019.
The carrier says the new flight is a welcome addition for the cargo community wishing to serve Texas, the second largest importing state in the US, where the manufacturing sector is projected to continue growing in the coming years.
Customers with a diverse range of commodities – including computer parts, medical devices, machinery, oil industry equipment, aviation parts and pharmaceuticals are already expressing interest in the flight, according to American, saying the potential commodities include computer parts, medical devices, machinery, oil industry equipment, aviation parts and pharmaceuticals.
With American having close to 900 departures from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub this summer, traffic from Dublin is ideally positioned to take advantage of the rest of the carrier’s global network, the carrier adds.
“This first, direct, scheduled service from Ireland to Texas will open up a number of new markets for both Irish and multinational exporters with freight destined for Dallas and beyond,” said Andy Cornwell, American Airlines Cargo’s regional manager – Northern Europe.
In Ireland, American’s long-standing General Sales Agent (GSA), International Airline Marketing, will continue to represent the carrier locally.
In addition to American’s new DUB flight to DFW, the airline also offers flights from DUB to Charlotte (CLT), Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Philadelphia (PHL), as well as seasonal service from Shannon (SNN) to PHL.
