American Airlines discontinues seasonal route to Manchester

 Friday, August 25, 2017 


American AirlinesAmerican Airlines has declared that from next summer onwards it would discontinue its daily seasonal service from Manchester International Airport to New York’s JFK Airport.


Currently the airline operates a combination of Boeing 767 and Boeing 757 aircraft for the flight across the Atlantic region.


On the other hand, Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic use an Airbus A330 for this route and they are the competitors of American Airlines. American Airlines had served Manchester International Airport to JFK Airport of New York. For 31 years, American Airlines had offered services to Manchester Airport.


They reassured that the other routes would not be cancelled and this includes daily flights from Manchester to Philadelphia and Chicago.


American also stated that there are many factors that influence network planning decisions, and the performance of the route is being monitored with time to make sure that the airliner is positioning itself for a long-term success against global competition.


Passengers who have been booked for the flights next year would be contacted to make new travel arrangements or be provided a full refund.


A representative from Manchester Airport said that the passengers would be able to enjoy a choice of up to three direct services per day to the Big Apple. For the New York-based passengers eager to fly with the oneworld alliance, they would have the opportunity to utilize the British Airways service to London Heathrow and connect to Manchester.
