FORT WORTH, Texas, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines today launches daily nonstop service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Dublin Airport (DUB), adding a new destination to American's extensive network and giving customers traveling from Dublin nonstop connections out of JFK to cities throughout North, Central and South America. The new flight is in addition to American's existing nonstop service from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Dublin and complements its 12 other daily nonstop flights from JFK to Europe. The route will be operated with a two-class Boeing 757-200 with 181 seats.
The new service is operated as part of American's joint business agreement with fellow oneworld® members British Airways and Iberia, connecting travelers to more than 125 cities throughout Europe. The new route provides American's customers access to countless destinations worldwide through nonstop service from Dublin on British Airways and Iberia to the carriers' respective hubs in London and Madrid.
"Thanks to our joint business with British Airways and Iberia, this new service connects American's customers to a wealth of travel options throughout Europe," said Tim Ahern, American's Vice President – New York and International. "Adding this route enhances our expanding global network out of JFK and further establishes American's commitment to providing our customers in New York seamless, one-stop connections to major business and leisure destinations in Europe."
To celebrate the new service, American is offering AAdvantage® members up to 20,000 bonus miles every time they fly a round trip on the route, including travel on American-operated flights marketed by British Airways or Iberia.
