American Airlines Adds Four New International Routes
American Airlines is already looking forward to next summer with an announcement of four new routes and the return on another as part of the airline’s largest trans-Atlantic expansion since 2019.
American’s expansion includes three new destinations in Europe. The airline will add nonstop service 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).
“American is thrilled to add three new European destinations,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Senior Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. “New service from Philadelphia and expanded trans-Atlantic service from Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth will offer customers convenient one-stop access from more than 200 unique destinations across the U.S. to Europe next summer.”
Tickets will be available for purchase starting August 20 on aa.com or American’s mobile app.
From Philadelphia to 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.
Starting June 5, American will inaugurate new service to NAP — the airline’s fourth Italian destination.
When service to CPH launches June 6, American will offer flights to 11 countries in Europe.

Complementing existing service between PHL and VCE, the additional flight from ORD will allow customers increased schedule flexibility and connect to more than 100 domestic destinations, including more Midwest cities.
American also recently expanded service to year-round on routes to several key trans-Atlantic destinations, including Lisbon, Portugal (LIS), Madrid (MAD), and Rome (FCO), providing customers more flexibility to plan their European vacations in 2024.
