The airline currently operates daily flights from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to all 11 U.S. destinations on a mix of Boeing widebody aircraft, including the 777-200, 777-300 and 787-9. US destinations for this direct winter service are Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), John. F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Miami International Airport (MIA), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), Phoenix (PHX), Raleigh-Durham ( RDU) and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
American also supports its Spanish markets with direct flights from Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD) to DFW, JFK, MIA and PHL, while shippers with cargo from Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) can take advantage of flights to JFK and MIA.
Looking at the French and German markets, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) will have a direct connection to DFW, JFK, MIA, ORD and PHL, while German customers will have two direct connections to CLT from both Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Munich International Airport (MUC) with additional service to DFW from FRA.
Two major Italian airports, Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) and Rome-Fiumicino International Airport (FCO), will directly serve JFK and PHL, respectively. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), Dublin Airport (DUB) and Zurich Airport (ZRH) will also continue to serve PHL.
“This is a really big expansion of our winter service after the years of the pandemic and is great news for American Airlines customers both in the UK and across Europe,” said Emma Oliver, Sales Director – EMEA & APAC for American Airlines Cargo. “We continue to see demand for our capacity to the US as we have many customers looking to move their cargo across our domestic network and beyond to Latin America or Asia.
