American Airlines Launches Exciting New Service to Nice, France from Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania – American Airlines continues to strengthen its transatlantic network from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) with new, exciting service launching today to Nice, France (NCE). Operating on a Boeing 787, new daily service to NCE offers customers direct access to the beauty of the French Riviera and nearby Cannes just in time for a summer getaway.

“The Philadelphia hub serves as American’s gateway to Europe, and we are proud of the critical role we play in connecting customers from across the U.S. to 14 European destinations this summer,” said Lakshman Amaranayaka, American’s Vice President of PHL Hub Operations. “Our inaugural service to Nice is the first of three new transatlantic routes launching from PHL this year, reinforcing our commitment to the region and to building the world’s best network.” 

American expands transatlantic flying from PHL this summer 

Next month, American will launch new nonstop service from PHL to Naples, Italy (NAP) and Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH). American will offer 15 daily nonstop flights from PHL to 14 European destinations this summer marking the largest transatlantic schedule from the City of Brotherly Love since 2019. With increased service to more than 70 domestic destinations from PHL, American offers convenient nonstop access to customers across the country to Europe. 

“We’re thrilled that travelers have even more options to experience new destinations in Europe, like Nice, from American Airlines’ transatlantic gateway at PHL,” said PHL CEO Atif Saeed. “Nice is a beautiful place to visit, and this year will be especially exciting, with the Tour de France finishing there for the first time ever along with several Olympic soccer matches being held in its stadium. The PHL team is looking forward to welcoming passengers as they fly to that amazing city, as well international guests traveling to Philadelphia and beyond.”
