American Airlines to launch daily non-stop flights between New York JFK and Birmingham Airport!!‏‏

American Airlines have announced that they will be launching a new daily non-stop year
round Boeing 757 service from Birmingham Airport to New York JFK on Friday 8 May 2015

The route will provide nearly 100,000 seats between and Birmingham and New York and through
the American Airlines and British Airways joint business and oneworld airline alliance will offer a
British Airways code share, allowing customers to earn and redeem BA Airmiles and Avios points
Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport's Chief Executive, said, "This new route will not only create more
capacity to this vibrant US business and tourist destination, it will also broaden connectivity and
choice from the Midlands with American Airlines across North America and Canada and see the
return of a British Airways flight code to Birmingham

"Last year, the West Midlands exported £4.5bn worth of goods to North America and has the largest
trade surplus with North America of any UK region, and with global brands such as JLR, JCB, Cadbury
and Kraft trading both locally and in the US, this is an important link for Midlands’ business"
"The region is also a major tourist destination for Americans, with attractions such as Stratford,
Warwick and Birmingham drawing in thousands of visitors every year so we look forward to
welcoming many of these tourists into Birmingham next summer and we thank the team at
American Airlines for recognising the region’s vast market opportunities"

"Adding Birmingham to American’s growing global network is an exciting development," said
Suzanne Boda, American’s senior vice president – Asia, Canada & Europe. "Tourists from the
U.S. 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"

The American Airlines flight will operate daily, arriving from New York JFK into Birmingham at 0710
local UK time. It will depart for its return leg at 1000, arriving into New York JFK at 1255 local US time
"Departing passengers from Birmingham will have direct flight to New York, one of the world’s
most renowned business and leisure destinations while connecting passengers will have excellent
access to key business and leisure markets up and down the East Coast.  We look forward to
starting this new route in 2015 and I’m confident of its success"

The new flights are now on sale at The flights will be operated by a Boeing 757 aircraft
with 22 Business Class seats and 160 Main Cabin seats
