American Airlines returns to Greece this summer with up to 3 flights a day, connecting Athens with the United States of America. Starting June 5, the new summer flight from Athens to New York will begin aboard Boeing777-200 aircraft.
“We are excited to be back in Greece this summer, with customer safety as our top priority, as always,” said Tom Lattig, Managing Director of EMEA Sales at American Airlines. “We know that there is a particularly high demand for travel between Greece and the United States. “Our customers are excited to again meet with their friends and family on both sides of the Atlantic, or with the prospect of enjoying their long-awaited holiday trip to History Greece, or even traveling to the beautiful Greek islands,” he added.
The new Athens-New York flight is an important stop, as part of the Northeast Alliance between JetBlue and American. This partnership offers customers enhanced connectivity and access to Northeast’s largest network.
Also, starting on June 5, American will restore the seasonal connection between Athens and Chicago, with Boeing 787-8 aircraft. Finally, from August 18, the company resumes summer flights from Athens to Philadelphia, with Boeing 787-8 aircraft.
