The merger of American Airlines and US Airways has reached a significant milestone as the cargo divisions combine under a single air waybill.

Since the end of 2013, the carriers’ cargo teams have combined 154 facilities and harmonised their product offerings, making cargo the first operational division of the merged airlines to become fully integrated.

The new entity reportedly brings in more than $800m each year and moves more than one billion lbs of freight and mail annually.

Chief operating officer of American Robert Isom described the creation of a single cargo organisation less than a year after the carriers merged as a “tremendous achievement”.
