American's flight from Dublin to connect up to 50 onward flights within the USA through JFKAmerican Airlines today announced the launch of services between Dublin (DUB) and New York (JFK). The new service will start on 12 June 2013, subject to government approval, and will be available for sale from 5 November, this year.
With a departure time of 9.00am from Dublin it means that this new service will be the first flight leaving Ireland for New York (JFK) each day and will be available throughout the year.
“Dublin is an important market for American and I am delighted that we can now offer a direct flight to New York (JFK) to complement the existing flight that we operate direct to Chicago (ORD). Both have excellent onward connections, opening up the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean to our Irish customers,” said Graham Bell, American’s Sales Director UK and Ireland. “This announcement is further confirmation of American’s long-term plan to enhance its global network. We have over 550 new aircraft on order, including 777-300ER, 787 and 777-200s, and we are responding to demand in each of our existing markets: growing our network and increasing frequencies where our customers require it.”
The daily flight - with an 11.30 a.m. arrival and a 6.55 p.m. departure from JFK – makes a one-day trip to New York a very real possibility for business and leisure clients. The route will be serviced by a two-class Boeing 757-200.
This new flight will be operated in conjunction with American’s Atlantic joint business partners, British Airways and Iberia. Passengers will have access to the customs pre-clearance facility at Dublin, saving time on entry into the United States.
