New US route from Manchester Airport
American Airlines has announced a new service from Manchester Airport to the cosmopolitan city New York.
The new non-stop daily service will operate from May 16 until September 30, 2010 between Manchester Airport and New York (JFK).
"These new routes further demonstrate America's commitment to the UK market and build upon our Manchester operation," said Craig Kreeger, senior vice president at the airline. "This will be our second scheduled service between Manchester and the USA and complements our Manchester-Chicago service which has been in operation for more than 20 years. We believe this new service to New York will prove equally popular, providing a great connection not only to one of the world's most exciting cities but also to the many destinations we serve from JFK."
Andrew Cornish, Manchester Airport's managing director, said: "We're delighted that American Airlines has decided to launch their second long haul service between Manchester and North America. The service to New York JFK offers convenient connections across their US network including Boston, Miami, Orlando, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Diego.
"All of these destinations have significant demand from the North West region giving passengers an alternative oneworld partner to these markets. New York itself has significant business links with the region across many sectors and continues to be a popular leisure destination."
