New service between Philadelphia and the Midwest available to book starting Oct. 9

American Airlines is giving its customers more access to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) from the Midwest and Texas. New service from PHL to San Antonio begins Feb. 15, 2018, followed by service to Des Moines, Iowa; Madison, Wis.; and Omaha, Neb., May 4, 2018. And effective March 25, 2018, one PHL-LAX frequency will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, offering West Coast customers better access to PHL and American’s transatlantic service.

“These new domestic markets are important and will complement the recently announced international destinations from our Philadelphia hub,” said Vasu Raja, American’s vice president, Network & Schedule Planning. “American offers more non-stop flights than all other airlines combined at PHL and we are excited to add to that roster.”

American recently announced new service to Prague and Budapest from PHL, allowing connections from these new cities to American’s expanding European footprint. American serves 116 destinations from PHL with nearly 400 daily departures.
