When transatlantic travel restrictions for U.S. passengers are lifted, PHL is slated to retain its position as American Airline’s primary hub for service to Europe and become the airline’s second largest international hub.
In American’s just released Winter 2020/Summer 2021 international schedule, travelers will be able to fly from PHL to Amsterdam, Dublin, London (Heathrow) and Madrid beginning with the winter 2020 schedule and to Manchester, Paris (DeGaulle), Rome and Zurich in summer 2021.
“International travel will be impacted by COVID-19 for many years to come,” said PHL CEO Chellie Cameron. “We are thrilled that, despite this industry downturn, American remains committed to the Greater Philadelphia region’s passengers by maintaining this level of international service at PHL.”
Nationally, American is anticipating a 25 percent reduction in its Summer 2021 long-haul international flights. At PHL, that projection is 20 percent over Summer 2019. Next summer, American will serve 16 European markets from PHL, eliminating Berlin, Budapest, Dubrovnik and Casablanca.
