American Airlines to Commence Flights from London Heathrow Terminal 5

posted on 6th July 2020 by Eddie Saunders

From July 7, American Airlines will begin provisionally operating all flights from London Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 5, the home of its Atlantic joint business partner and fellow oneworld member, British Airways. The co-location of American’s operations into Terminal 5, voted best airport terminal in the world six times (Skytrax World Airport Awards), will make connecting at Heathrow quicker and easier than ever.

Terminal 5 is also home to Iberia; this move will enable the carriers to operate flights seamlessly this summer from the same Heathrow terminal.

American will be operating four daily flights from LHR Terminal 5 to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK), Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Miami (MIA). American is rebuilding its international network by focusing on strategic hubs like Heathrow to enable future growth in this new environment.

Moving American’s operations to Terminal 5 for the first time will greatly improve the customer travel experience, enabling faster and easier connections by working closely alongside our valued joint business partners,” said Rhett Workman, Managing Director Europe & Asia-Pacific. “While our surroundings may have changed, the safety of our customers and team members remains of paramount importance and we are working tirelessly with our partners and the airport to ensure we continue to offer a safe travel experience.”
