American Airlines has announced a daily transatlantic service from Birmingham International to New York JFK from next year.
Starting on May 8, the service will arrive into Birmingham from JFK at 07.10 local UK time and depart for its return leg at 10.00, arriving at JFK at 12.55 local US time. American Airlines will be using a Boeing 757, with 160 main cabin seats and 22 business class seats and tickets are now on sale.
Suzanne Boda, American Airlines senior vice president for Asia, Canada and Europe said: “Adding Birmingham to American’s growing global network is an exciting development.
“Tourists from the US will have closer access to a wide range of attractions in the Midlands while business travellers will also be rewarded with greater choice when flying across the Atlantic.”
