DALLAS — American Airlines (AA) announced its largest-ever summer schedule for London today. This expansion is part of the airline’s long-haul expansion plans for summer 2023.
The operation will include 26 daily flights to London Heathrow Airport (LHR) from 11 different cities across North America. It also reinforces the airline’s position as the biggest US carrier at LHR.
Regarding the new expansion, Rhett Workman, American Airlines’ managing director of strategic performance and UK operations, said, “Travel to and from the US and England is increasing in popularity, and we are thrilled to be able to cater to the growing demand from passengers.”
The carrier will offer four flights a day to New York (JFK), Chicago (ORD), and its home hub of Dallas (DFW). Additions to Los Angeles (LAX) and Charlotte (CLT) have been added, with three flights daily to both hubs.
American will also have twice daily service to Miami (MIA) and Philadelphia (PHL), along with daily service to Boston (BOS), Phoenix (PHX), Raleigh-Durham (RDU), and Seattle (SEA).
