As of June 3, American Airlines will fly from Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos to John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The flights will be conducted on a Boeing 777-200.
“We are looking forward to launching our new route between New York and Athens, which will offer enhanced connectivity between these two great cities,” said Tom Lattig, vice president EMEA sales and distribution of American Airlines.
“The safety and comfort of our customers and team is always our top priority and we look forward to serving our passengers on this popular business and leisure route,” he added.
Onboard customers can choose to travel in Flagship Business, Premium Economy or Main Cabin, while WiFi and inflight entertainment will be available throughout the aircraft.
American Airlines’ new route to Athens marks a significant milestone as part of the new strategic alliance between JetBlue and American Airlines Group Inc.
The partnership offers customers enhanced connectivity and access to the biggest network in the northeast of the US.
This alliance will be integral for both carriers as they rebuild operations in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Customers will be able to book this route from Monday, January 25.
