American Airlines Set to Add Africa, Others Next Summer
In an airline first, American Airlines added its first route to Africa, as well as four additional international routes.
American Airlines is adding five international routes next summer: Philadelphia (PHL)–Casablanca (CMN); Dallas (DFW)–Tel Aviv (TLV); Chicago (ORD)–Krakow (KRK); Chicago–Budapest (BUD); and Chicago–Prague (PRG).
The new routes make American the first U.S.-based carrier with non-stop service to Casablanca. The route will operate three times weekly on a Boeing 757.
“We look forward to working with Royal Air Maroc when they join oneworld® in 2020, which will allow for even more connections further into Africa to places like Marrakech, Lagos and Accra. This is only the beginning,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of network and schedule planning, American Airlines.
