American Airlines is now offering double AAdvantage® miles for passengers who purchase qualifying First Class, Business Class or Economy Class fares for travel between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and London's Stansted and Heathrow airports. The offer applies to trips booked between now and June 30, 2008, for travel completed between May 16, 2008, and June 30, 2008. To participate in this offer, register prior to travel using promotion code NYL08 and obtain complete details at http://www.aa.com/offers.
"We are happy to extend this AAdvantage bonus offer to our present customers who fly from JFK to both Stansted and Heathrow and to new customers, as well," said Chuck Imhof, American's Vice President - Sales for Greater New York. "I am delighted that we now offer customers the option of five daily flights from New York to Heathrow, plus one to Stansted. We began flying JFK-Stansted last October in response to demand from our corporate customers."
As part of the "Open Skies" agreement between the United States and the European Union, American is focusing U.S.-London flights on Stansted and Heathrow airports. Stansted is a favored airport for travelers whose business takes them to the Canary Wharf or City financial districts of London -- or for leisure travelers who want to enjoy the attractions of trendy East London or the delights of Cambridge and the nearby countryside. American currently operates 18 daily flights from the United States to London's Heathrow airport, five of which depart from JFK, and the others from Boston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and Raleigh/Durham.
American also flies direct from JFK to Brussels, Zurich, Rome and Paris and recently inaugurated nonstop service to Barcelona and Milan.
American, a founding member of the global oneworld® Alliance, and American Eagle, combine to carry more than 16 million passengers each year to and from four New York-area airports (John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, and White Plains/Westchester County) on more than 180,000 flights.
