Non-stop flights between Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and three European cities are being introduced next year by American Airlines in a move it says will begin affirming its “commitment to PHL as its transatlantic gateway”.
The airline will transfer daily year-round non-stop flights between Zurich and Philadelphia, previously operated from New York JFK, from 25 March. Summer seasonal services to Budapest and Prague will begin on 4 May. American says passengers can benefit from connecting opportunities at Philadelphia.
Regional vice-president Olympia Colasante said: “As our largest transatlantic hub, Philadelphia is well suited for our further expansion. These new routes strengthen our commitment to the airport and leverage connecting power in the US to feed and develop new markets across the Atlantic.”
With the new flights, PHL will offer service to 37 international destinations, including 14 capital cities. Most recently, Icelandair began seasonal non-stop service in May between PHL and Reykjavik, marking the arrival of the first new international carrier at PHL since 2014.
