American Airlines transported a record breaking 115,000 pounds of seeds to farmers in the US for a busy planting season. Spring is soybean and corn planting season in America’s heartland as U.S farmers continue to produce. The airline transported the seeds from Argentina to the United States.

The seeds were on one of American Airline cargo-only routes from Buenos Aires (EZE) to Miami (MIA). The April 16th flight transported 115,349 pounds (or 52,321 kilograms) of soybean seeds on a Boeing 777-300.

“We are proud to be a part of this important cycle that supports local farming and provides vital food and fuel for the global economy. Transporting record-breaking volume in the process is just icing on the cake,” said Lorena Sandoval, Director of Cargo Sales for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America. “With reduced flight schedules due to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to maximize every inch of available cargo space. We’re here to support the world’s food supply, no matter what we face.”
