American Airlines Launches 20 New Routes For 2020

Previously announced seasonal destinations for summer 2020

Considering the considerable expansion planned for the summer 2020 season, American Airlines[5] is clearly aiming to attract holiday-goers from across the country.

“Our future is bright, and we see summer 2020 as an opportunity for growth in the leisure destinations our customers truly value,” Vasu Raja said in today’s press release.

The airline has planned a number of regional short-haul flights for holiday goers who don’t fancy traveling too far.

New routes to Anchorage and Fairbanks in Alaska are part of the domestic route expansion planned for summer 2020.

Passengers looking to travel a bit further afield will also have a selection of new routes to choose from.

Chicago O’Hare International Airport will be the go-to airport for holidaymakers looking to travel to Eastern Europe.

American Airlines will be launching multiple flights per week to Budapest in Hungary, Krakow in Poland and Prague in the Czech Republic from Chicago O’Hare.

From Philadelphia, passengers will also be able to catch daily flights to Reykjavik, Iceland. For those looking to fly somewhere a bit hotter, a Philadelphia to Casablanca, Morocco[7] service will also run three times per week.

An American Airlines spokesperson confirmed with Simple Flying that, “these new routes are popular leisure destinations that allow for optimal connections from across the country during the peak summer.”

All in all, there is a lot of choice for passengers looking to book a getaway for next summer, both inside the US and further afield.

Tickets for the new routes will be available to buy from Monday 25 November onwards.
