Large shipments for Rio lifted by AA Cargo
American Airlines (AA) Cargo has safely delivered over 65 tonnes of high-tech broadcast equipment and athletic gear to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil for high-resolution filming at the sporting festival. One of the largest shipments of this kind moved over a three-week period to Rio’s Galeão International (GIG) via two American Airlines gateway hubs, Los Angeles (LAX) and Miami (MIA). Fourteen different movements made up this particular consignment, which travelled in the bellies of American’s wide body aircraft. A variety of other unique shipments also travelled across the American Airlines network to Brazil, including sporting goods out of Australia, jerseys and promotional items and athletic training equipment from different locations worldwide.
