New daily service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International (JFK) is scheduled to begin May 7 with a Boeing 757. Customers may begin booking travel on these flights now. Birmingham will be American’s fifth destination in the United Kingdom.
“We are very excited to add Birmingham, England to American’s growing global network,” said Chuck Schubert, American’s vice president – Network and Schedule Planning.
“This flight gives our customers on both sides of the Atlantic a new option for travel between the United States and England.
Our extensive network beyond New York City will provide tremendous access between key business and leisure markets and Birmingham.”
Flights leave JFK at 7 p.m. daily, arriving in Birmingham at 7:10 a.m.
Flights from Birmingham will depart at 10 a.m., arriving at JFK at 12:55 p.m.
The airline offers expanded service for customers through its Atlantic joint business with British Airways, Iberia and Finnair and its oneworld alliance partners.
The joint business has more lie-flat seats on routes between JFK and London Heathrow (LHR) than any other alliance.
