BA-AUS-787-first-flight-March-3-2014

On the Ides of March (March 3rd) British Airways opened their first new airport operation in the USA in several years, when their Boeing 787 Dreamliner touched down five minutes early in Austin, TX.

Air General was selected as the cargo handling agent for this new BA station and on the first day we accepted 14,821 kilos of freight plus three animals for the departure.
Our new cargo facility in AUS is our second in this airport. We currently handle United Airlines Cargo, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines cargo in our first facility.
