2018 is a year of growth for American Airlines. The carrier recently shared detailed plans to expand both domestic and international routes this year, with customers in markets like Philadelphia and Chicago getting more flight options than ever before.

Philadelphia-based travelers will soon be able to fly nonstop to Fort Wayne, Indiana, Oklahoma City and Pensacola, Florida, while a new service will help connect travelers from Charlotte Douglas International Airport and DFW to Panama City, Florida and South Bend, Indiana.

The airline also announced plans to provide more international flights last August, including routes to Reykjavik, Iceland. Services to Budapest and Prague from Philadelphia, as well as additional flights to Venice from Chicago, will begin in May 2018. Last summer, American introduced routes from Amsterdam and Rome to Dallas/Fort Worth and between Chicago and Barcelona to meet the growing demand for international flights.

“Summer travel to Europe is very popular,” said Vasu Raja, a Vice President at American, in a press release announcing the May 2018 routes. “These flights will conveniently connect customers from two very important hubs – Chicago and Philadelphia – to exciting markets across the Atlantic.”

By the end of 2018, American will add a total of 52 nonstop flights to its growing network.
