American Airlines adds new routes and destinations to see the world next summer

  • American Airlines will add flights to three new European cities in 2024 — Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH); Nice, France (NCE); and Naples, Italy (NAP) — starting next summer.
  • American continues to build and expand its comprehensive global network to take customers where they want to go with the airline’s largest European expansion in four years.
  • The airline will also further expand its largest-ever winter schedule between the United States and Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America, maintaining its status as the premier carrier serving the region.

American Airlines has announced four new routes and bring back another route as part of the airline’s largest trans-Atlantic expansion since 2019.

American will add new nonstop service to Europe, with flights from Philadelphia (PHL) to Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH); Naples, Italy (NAP); and Nice, France (NCE).

American will also launch new service between Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Barcelona, Spain (BCN) and bring back flights between Chicago (ORD) and Venice, Italy (VCE).

From the streets of Philadelphia to the promenades of Europe

American will offer 15 daily nonstop flights from PHL to 14 European destinations next summer, its largest trans-Atlantic schedule from the City of Brotherly Love since 2019. With increased service to more than 70 domestic destinations from PHL, American offers convenient one-stop access for customers across the country to Europe.

Starting May 6, American will launch service between PHL and NCE, the gateway to the glitz and glam of the French Riviera. Flights will start in time for customers to be mesmerized by the flashing lights in nearby Cannes.

Starting June 5, American will inaugurate new service to NAP — the airline’s fourth Italian destination. From indulging in local Neapolitan pizza and cuisine to the historical ruins of Pompeii and basking in the sun on the Amalfi Coast, Naples offers customers a uniquely Italian vacation.

When service to CPH launches June 6, American will offer flights to 11 countries in Europe. With this new service to Scandinavia, customers can explore the colorful buildings in Nyhavn harbor, delight in traditional butter cookies and experience near endless daylight.
