Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport has welcomed two new American Airlines routes to Dublin, Ireland, and Munich, Germany.

The addition of Dublin will be the only nonstop service between Texas and Ireland. Service to Munich will mark DFW Airport’s third daily nonstop flight to Germany.

With the addition of these flights, DFW Airport will offer 17 daily nonstop flights to nine European cities this summer. This is nearly double the frequencies to Europe that DFW offered only five years ago when the Airport connected travelers to five European cities with nine daily nonstop flights.

“We are confident the addition of Dublin and Munich to our offerings at DFW will be popular with both business and leisure travelers alike and will contribute to our region’s growth for in-bound tourism, and trade,” said John Ackerman, DFW’s executive vice president of global strategy and development.

The inaugural flights are part of American Airlines largest expansion at DFW in more than a decade.  The airline now offers more than 900 daily flights and 9,000 one-stop connections through DFW—more one-stop connections than any other airline hub in the world. 

“By growing our largest and most profitable hub, we are building the world’s most connected network,” said Vasu Raja, vice president of network and schedule planning for American.

Dublin and Munich will be the 8th and 9th European destinations with nonstop service from DFW Airport. With these additions, DFW Airport provides nonstop service to 63 international destinations and 190 domestic destinations.
