American Airlines cargo opens new cargo terminal at Los Angeles International Airport

American Airlines Cargo Division (AA Cargo) today announced its newly-relocated cargo terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The facility will offer streamlined handling capability – including a 3,000-square-foot cooler for perishables and expanded areas for courier cargo, mail processing and a designated holding area for live animals.

“AA Cargo’s new facility is designed to enhance our customers’ shipping experience by increasing our cargo handing capability at LAX – one of the world’s busiest airports,” said Dave Brooks, President - American Airlines Cargo. “The new facility represents a significant investment, which not only strengthens our cargo operation in Los Angeles, but also solidifies it as a major airfreight hub to and from Asia-Pacific, Europe and beyond.”

Directly adjacent to American’s previous cargo terminal at LAX, the new facility located at 5950 Avion Dr. opens for business at 4 a.m. on Feb. 22.
