American Airlines Adds 3 New Destinations
As summer is winding down, American Airlines is looking ahead to next year with the announcement of four new routes and return of another route as part of the airline’s largest trans-Atlantic expansion since 2019. The epansion includes three new European destinations.
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).
Tickets will be available for purchase starting Aug. 20 on aa.com or American’s mobile app.
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.

More Connections Across the Atlantic
American will launch new service between DFW and BCN for the first time next summer, providing unparalleled schedule options. American will expand its position as the largest U.S. airline serving BCN. With five gateways to choose from across the U.S., American provides an unparalleled schedule and network for customers looking to take in all that Barcelona has to offer.
American will also be the only airline to offer a nonstop flight connecting the Windy City to the City of Water with the return of service between ORD and VCE. 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.
