We are pleased to announce that American Airlines Cargo has joined the PayCargo Payment Network as a same day release Vendor.
You can now pay them via PayCargo and obtain a quick, same day release.
It all officially started with a 19-hour flight from New York City to Southern California. On Oct. 15, 1944, they loaded up a DC-3 with more than 6,000 pounds of cargo and flew the first scheduled air cargo flight from LaGuardia Field to Burbank, California.
Before that, they can trace the lineage back to an association of air transport companies that merged to become American Airways, the direct predecessor of American Airlines.
The first cargo flown by their predecessor was a mail contract route from Chicago to St. Louis flown by none other than Charles Lindbergh.
