American Airlines, which is Air General’s largest customer, has awarded Air General it’s American Airlines Cargo Cup Award for Q2 2016 to CLT (Best Large Station Winner) and to FLL for Q3 2016 (U.S./ Canadian Winner)!

The Cargo Cup Award is given out each quarter to a selection of outstanding teams who are being recognized for their extraordinary efforts in helping American Airlines work toward being the preferred choice in air cargo. This is an outstanding accomplishment for Air General, as the American Airlines Cargo network encompasses over a hundred stations throughout the US, which makes this very special to be chosen.

This is the second time Air General’s CLT station has won this prestigious award, last time it had one for the Q4 2014 period. FLL has won it’s first (of we hope many!) cargo cup award from AA, and we couldn’t be more proud of that team as they also just opened their new facility for AA at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport. This is also the second time Air General has had back-to-back wins for the cargo cup, in 2014 Air General won Q3 for STL and Q4 for CLT.

Congratulations to the entire cargo teams in CLT and FLL for this amazing achievement!

I just wanted to thank you for the scholarship your company provides. I am the recipient of the Robert M. Maloney
Scholarship this year and I wanted to give my thanks. This scholarship only makes me want to keep going and push
harder for what I want to accomplish. My aspiration is to become a Veterinarian and to help people and their pets recover
and stay healthy. This is something I am extremely passionate about and to know that not only my family is doing
everything they can to support my dream, but that your company has given me support to do so as well. Thank you for
not only helping me, but others who want to succeed and follow their dreams as well. I wish I could have thanked you
personally for helping my family and me.

Thank you,

agi stl cargo cup award 2014
Air General is pleased to congratulate our entire team in STL on their prestigious award of the American Airlines Cargo Cup for the Third Quarter!

When Station Manager Chris Jones was asked what best practices he and his team used to achieve this award he said:

1. Make SURE that we show an item “On Hand” or “IP” or “Available” as soon as we get it in the building.
2. Make SURE that we have everything to the ramp for loading a minimum of 60 mins out from flight departure.
3. Make SURE to have developed and continue to develop our relationship with our AA ramp counterparts.
4. Never and I mean NEVER give up. Keep chipping away at those numbers. Every little tiny bit helps!
5. Repeat all of the above steps EVERY DAY !!!


These fundamentals not only apply to AA, but all of Air General’s airline customers. Employing these best practices and fundamentals ensure our all of our operations shine that much more.

Air General is very proud of our team in STL, led by Station Manager Chris Jones, and extremely grateful for the very significant efforts that make this achievement possible.
