The public is getting ready to fly again. To accommodate the recent upturn in passenger demand, American Airlines will increase its average PHL daily departures in July to 187 flights — 99 percent more than its daily average in June. From July 7 to August 17—American’s peak summer schedule—the airline will average 207 daily departures from PHL.
“We are encouraged by American’s July schedule,” said PHL CEO Chellie Cameron. “After so many weeks of empty terminals, we are seeing more travelers at the Airport. Many people want to take a vacation. American, PHL’s biggest airline partner, has responded not only by offering more flights here, but also by resuming service to many vacation destinations.”
Among the more than 20 destinations American will recommence service to in July from PHL are Austin, Denver, Hilton Head Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, San Diego, San Francisco and San Juan. Additionally, American will increase frequency to more than 30 markets. International service to London, Madrid and Zurich, is now slated to resume in August.
American will also operate twice-weekly cargo only flights from PHL to flights to Rome, Milan and Frankfurt from June 27-August 5.
“The air freight industry has been booming as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. We welcome these international cargo flights at PHL,” said Cameron.
In addition to more flights, American will also reopen its PHL Admiral’s Club in Terminal B/C on June 22. For more information on Admirals Club health and well-being enhancements, click here.
