Per American Airlines,
American Airlines is giving its customers more access to Europe, with new summer service to Budapest (BUD) and Prague (PRG) from Philadelphia, and additional service to Venice (VCE) from Chicago, starting May 4, 2018.
Budapest and Prague will be new destinations on American’s route map. The airline currently offers service to Venice from Philadelphia. This summer, American began service to Amsterdam and Rome from Dallas/Fort Worth, and to Barcelona from Chicago, further expanding its European footprint. American and its joint business partners serve 23 destinations in Europe nonstop from the U.S. with more than 130 daily departures.
American plans to expand their international service from both Philadelphia and Chicago, which reiterates their focus on these markets, compared to the New York market.
