American Airlines to inaugurate new Europe routes for summer 2018

American AirlinesAmerican Airlines has released a bulletin detailing news of three new flight routes to Europe for the summer of 2018. Two of the routes are from Philadelphia and will connect to Prague and Budapest.

They will launch early next May and will tap into mushrooming demand for travel between the US and Europe. Commenting on the two new routes, American Airlines’ vice-president of network and scheduling noted that demand for travel to Europe was always high during the summer months.

Vasu Raja carried on by saying these flights would seamlessly connect the key Pennsylvania airport with two popular European cities. Raja also confirmed the third route American would be adding was a direct Chicago to Venice service and this would also launch in May.

Passengers wishing to fly Chicago to Venice with American Airlines currently have to transit in Philadelphia. The airline does not fly to Prague or Budapest at present and these two European cultural hubs are brand new destinations.

The two will add extra choices to the fast growing American Airlines European network. Starting at the beginning of summer 2017, the carrier launched new services from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport to Amsterdam and Rome. Another new route was from Chicago to Barcelona.

Airline industry analysts say American Airlines and its partners operate on 23 non-stop US to Europe routes. American Airlines now operates more than 130 transatlantic flights every day. The carrier is the world’s biggest and is a member of Oneworld, the same airline alliance as British Airways and Iberia.
