American appoints GSA for Indian ops

American Airlines has appointed Air Logistics Group as its Cargo General Sales Agent (GSA) for its operations in India. The new GSA representation will bring added benefits to American’s Cargo customers as the airline continues to expand its cargo capacity and frequency between the two nations. American Airlines Cargo has served the Indian market with a GSA for more than two decades.

“India is an important market for American’s cargo operations,” said Tim Isik, Director Cargo Sales – Europe, Middle East and Africa, in adding, “As we prepare to launch our new Seattle to Bengaluru service in 2021, we are delighted to be strengthening our position in India through this exclusive partnership with Air Logistics Group.” “India is a very important part of our worldwide network, with a high demand for both inbound and outbound cargo traffic such as pharmaceuticals, auto parts and fabrics,” said Shanna Abbott, GSA Contracts Manager, American Airlines Cargo, in adding, “Having Air Logistics Group represent us throughout India will enhance service for our customers who ship from key cities. A local presence is a sure-fire way for us to ensure that each customer’s needs are being met.”

“We are excited to represent American Airlines’ Cargo in India,” said Sakshi Gupta, Country Manager, Air Logistics Group. “India is a fast growing and strategic market for American and we are looking forward to promoting and strengthening the exports and imports trade between the two nations through our skills and expertise,” she adds.
