American Airlines is giving its customers more access to Europe, with new summer service to Budapest (BUD) and Prague (PRG) from Philadelphia, and additional service to Venice (VCE) from Chicago, starting May 4, 2018.
“Summer travel to Europe is very popular,” said Vasu Raja, American’s vice president, Network & Schedule Planning. “These flights will conveniently connect customers from two very important hubs – Chicago and Philadelphia – to exciting markets across the Atlantic.”
Budapest and Prague will be new destinations on American’s route map. The airline currently offers service to Venice from Philadelphia.
