To meet customer demand, American Airlines announced that they are expanding its European network with nine new routes. The new service to Germany, Italy and Croatia is set to begin next summer, according to a news release.

 

From Charlotte:

American Airlines will offer daily year-round service to Munich Airport.

 

From Detroit:

There will be daily summer seasonal service to Dublin Airport and to Munich Airport.

 

From Chicago:

From Chicago, there will be daily summer seasonal service to Athens International Airport in Greece.

 

From Philadelphia:

There are a few changes from Philadelphia happening. Daily summer seasonal service to Edinburgh Airport in Scotland; new summer seasonal service to Berlin-Tegel Airport in Germany, Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport in Italy, and Dubrovnik Airport in Croatia.

 

From Phoenix:

Daily seasonal service to London Heathrow Airport.


 

“By providing the only nonstop service from North America to Bologna and Dubrovnik and adding Berlin to our international footprint, American is making it easier to see the world,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of network and schedule planning, in a statement. “Through our Atlantic Joint Business, we have seen increased interest to these markets from the U.S., and adjusting our network to introduce these destinations will provide more choices for customers on both sides of the Atlantic.”

 

American’s new flights will be available for sale starting Aug. 27

 

Other changes, however, includes modified services to Asia. Due to the current fuel and competitive environment, American will suspend service between O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and Shanghai Pudong International Airport this October, according to a news release.  The airlines will also reduce service between O’Hare and Narita International Airport in Japan from daily to three days per week.  This change will become effective this December.

 

“These adjustments to our Asia service are necessary in this high fuel cost environment, but we remain committed to the network we’ve worked hard to build,” added Raja. “As with Shanghai, American will continue to serve Tokyo through our hubs in Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles.”
