American Airlines announced some exciting new routes for next summer as they look to continue their Transatlantic expansion with several new routes. Highlight include starting service to Africa for the first time ever for American when they begin flying to Casablanca, Morocco (CMN), in June.
American is also adding new service to Krakow, Poland (KRK), and returning to Tel Aviv, Israel (TLV) from Dallas. They’re also complementing their existing seasonal service to Prague, Czech Republic (PRG), and Budapest, Hungary (BUD), from Philadelphia but adding these from Chicago-O’Hare next summer.
Per American Airlines,
When American begins service to Morocco next year, it will be the airline’s first entrance into the African continent. American will be the only U.S. carrier with nonstop service to Casablanca, which will be operated three times per week on a Boeing 757.
As demand continues to grow between the U.S. and TLV, American is adding three weekly flights from DFW, its largest hub. These flights will serve customers throughout the U.S. and allow many customers to make only one stop, rather than the previous two stops that were available, to TLV. And as the tech industry continues to grow in the market, American will provide the most efficient routing to U.S. tech cities like Austin, Texas, and San Jose, California, in addition to one-stop service to 33 new cities in the U.S.
American’s Midwest hub, ORD, has seen significant growth and now offers more domestic and international seats today than it has in more than a decade. Next summer, the growth continues with three new destinations in Eastern Europe, including American’s first flight to KRK and new service to PRG and BUD, which American began flying to seasonally from PHL in 2018. American will offer the most premium seats to Eastern Europe of all U.S. carriers next summer, as all of the new flights will be operated by a Boeing 787-8, featuring 20 Flagship Business seats and 28 Premium Economy seats.
Here’s a highlight of the new American routes next summer:
- Dallas-Ft. Worth- Tel Aviv, Israel TLV 3x/week 787-9 Year-round, starting Sept. 9, 2020
