FORT WORTH, Tex.--American Airlines Cargo begins offering widebody cargo service from Los Angeles (LAX) to Sao Paulo, Brazil (GRU) December 18. 

The new service, operated with a B777-200ER, provides customers with a fourth gateway to and from Sao Paulo. Currently, American offers service between Sao Paulo and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX).

“We’re excited to begin offering this new service, and we expect it to be a great opportunity for our customers moving freight from Asia to Brazil,” said Jim Butler, president of American Airlines Cargo. “This new service is just another way we’re growing our global network and continuing to provide our customers with more options for shipping.”

Automotive parts, equipment and infrastructure for mobile networks and international mail are expected to be the primary exports from Asia into Brazil. Perishables, leather and aircraft parts are expected to be the major exports from Brazil.

Last month, American launched cargo service between Miami (MIA) and Milan, Italy, Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Bogota, Columbia (BOG), and southbound service from Miami (MIA) to Curitiba, Brazil (CWB) and Porto Alegre, Brazil (POA). American will begin offering widebody service between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Hong Kong (HKG) as well as Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Shanghai, China (PVG) in June 2014.
