American Airlines will launch its 2021 summer season with a new direct flight between Athens and New York. The new route will be on a Boeing 777-200 from June 3, 2021.
The new US route to Athens is a milestone for the US carrier’s strategic alliance with the airline Jet Blue. It should not be forgotten that this cooperation is expected to increase interconnectivity and access to the largest network on the northeast side of the country.
“We look forward to the launch of our new New York to Athens route which will provide a better connection between these two major cities,” said Tom Lattig, vice president of sales and distribution for American Airlines.
“The safety and comfort of our customers and crew is always our top priority and we look forward to serving travelers again. “
The flight will depart Eleftherios Venizelos at 11:00 am and arrive in New York at 3:05 pm. Likewise, the departure from New York will be at 4:20 pm and the arrival in Athens is estimated at 8:50 am.
It should be remembered that American is the first American airline to adopt the VeriFLY platform which offers an easy way to submit a negative result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) test, as well as other completed documents required by all international travel destinations to the United States of America.
Hoping that by then the new American President Joe Biden will authorize Europeans and therefore Greeks to go to the USA.
