American Airlines is to consolidate London services from Heathrow Terminal 5 alongside transatlantic partner British Airways.

The US carrier will be operating four daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth, New York JFK, Chicago O’Hare and Miami from July 7.

American is rebuilding its international network by focusing on strategic hubs like Heathrow to enable future growth in the “new environment” post-coronavirus.

Terminal 5 is also home to BA‘s sister carrier Iberia, enabling the airlines to provide seamless connections this summer from a single Heathrow terminal.

American’s Europe and Asia-Pacific managing director Rhett Workman said: “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.

“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.”
