American Airlines expands its presence at London’s Heathrow Airport
Beginning March 27, American Airlines will further expand its presence in London Heathrow International Airport’s Terminal 5 by co-locating up to 11 daily flights for the summer season. This move allows American Airlines customers connecting on Atlantic Joint Business partner British Airways, as well as other oneworld Alliance carriers, to enjoy a more seamless experience between the partner carriers and more convenient access to British Airways’ six premium lounges.
“London is a critical gateway for our customers traveling around the world,” said Jose Freig, American’s Vice President of International Operations and Premium Guest Services. “By co-locating alongside our partners in Terminal 5, our joint customers will enjoy unprecedented convenience when connecting. We look forward to further integrating our operations this summer, both in the United States and London, as we aim to continue elevating our customers’ experience.”
Through Oct. 30, American’s flights between London and Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami and New York (JFK) will arrive and depart from Terminal 5. As a result, customers connecting on British Airways’ flights at Terminal 5 to destinations around the world will be able to take further advantage of established reciprocal benefits while enjoying unprecedented flexibility and a truly seamless connecting experience when traveling across airlines.
The move will bring the Atlantic Joint Business partners, including Iberia, even closer together, building off recently announced plans for all three carriers to co-locate operations at JFK’s Terminal 8 beginning Dec. 1.
As Atlantic Joint Business partners, American and British Airways offer the most flights and the most competitive schedule for customers traveling between the United States and London compared to any other partnership.
American’s flights between London and Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, will continue to arrive and depart from London Terminal 3.
