American Airlines Cargo Division (AA Cargo) today announced it has expanded the weight limit for its international Priority Parcel Service SM (PPS) to provide customers with additional flexibility in shipping heavier, time-sensitive packages. PPS Heavyweight SM provides a per piece weight limit increase to 100 pounds (46 kilograms) for shipments originating in the United States to all countries worldwide, with the exception of Japan.
“AA Cargo continues to explore new ways to expand shipping options for our customers,” said Dave Brooks, President – AA Cargo. “The expansion of our PPS product provides customers with heavy piece shipments with greater access to our global network.”
For more than 30 years, Priority Parcel Service has provided same-day, counter-to-counter service throughout the United States and many parts of the world. Available through American’s ticket counters, cargo terminals and designated PPS facilities, the product offers flight-specific shipping and highest-priority boarding, with no advanced booking required.
