American Airlines has recently launched new direct flight service between Chicago and Helsinki. The airline will serve the new European city from 1st May 2011. This new launch will make Helsinki the tenth European destination that would be served by American Airlines Reservations.
The new route will facilitate Finnish passengers to connect to 75 other destinations in United States and US passengers to 15 European destinations. This will also strengthen economic ties between the two countries.
Olavi Goos, Finland Honorary Consul, said, “Good connections are essential to get people to meet and experience new ideas and develop business and cultural ties. American Airlines, supported by Finnair, is establishing a historic, new direct flight connection that will finally fill the gap that has separated Chicago, the Midwest, and Helsinki – not only by distance, but by lack of mutual awareness.”
American Airlines recently started its new flight service to Los Angeles via nine other new United States cites that will be served by American’s Hawaii flights. The airline will thus provide Hawaiian passengers with more options to travel to the various mainland cities. The new flight service will operate through nine cities such as Albuquerque, Boise, El Paso, Houston, Oklahoma, Phoenix, Salt Lake, Sacramento, and Tucson.
American Airlines Reservations, the subsidiary of the AMR Corporation is the world’s fourth largest airline in miles transported, passenger fleet size, and operating revenues. The airline has been operating its flight service on domestic and international routes. The international airline offers both business class seats and coach class seats to all its customers.
American Airlines reservations recently announced that it will resume its flight service from 5th April 2011 between Dublin and Chicago. The airline will operate its Boeing 767-300 aircraft daily, which will be equipped with 30 business class and 195 coach class seats.
The airline in its statement said that it will start its operations from Dublin Airport’s new Terminal 2 that was inaugurated last year. This will benefit the passengers with pre-clear U.S. immigration and customs prior to boarding their flight. Also, on the flight arrival the passengers will be welcomed as the domestic passengers and instead of international passengers. The new flight service will also allow them to have further flight connections from the Terminal 3 at Chicago O’ Hara airport. There will be no claim or re-check baggage before continuing on their next flight.
Loretta Kuss, Director, Passenger Sales, Chicago, said, “We are delighted to resume our service to Dublin and to relocate in Dublin’s newest terminal. We look forward to welcoming back our Irish customers and hope they will enjoy the U.S. Customs and Border Protection pre-clearance benefits made possible by our terminal move.”
Considering the rise in corporate demand, American Airlines reservations will soon start its flight service on the New York-Tokyo route. The services from New York to Tokyo, Haneda, will commence from 18th February 2011 and from Haneda, Tokyo to New York from 20th February 2011.
Haneda is just 30 minutes away from Tokyo. However, the significant move by the airline came due to an increase in the business travel demand.
“We are seeing a nice improvement in overall demand that’s correlating with the economy improving. No one’s doing any high fives yet but we’re certainly encouraged by the more recent trend,” said Jim Carter, vice president of the eastern division sales at America.
The new move is the follow up of the Open Skies agreement, which was signed in October 2010 between United States and Japan to liberalize the aviation market.
The airline is expecting the new service will definitely intrigue most of the corporate. The airline is also looking forward to expand its network in China.
After the 2009 downturn, the air traffic is rebounding back to normal and airlines are now spreading their service in the entire US and international markets, which have started showing excellent growth rate.
The airline said that it has been into the process of adding 31 more flights on 13 new routes that will operate from New York to the other cities of the world. The airline has also invested USD 30 million on the New York’s JFK and LaGuardia terminals.
Carter said the new Haneda service would make American’s oneworld alliance, which includes Japan Airlines and Qantas Airways, “much more relevant” in Asia.
