American Airlines expands its presence at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5

Beginning March 27, American Airlines will strengthen its presence at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) Terminal 5. It will start operating up to 11 daily flights from its main hubs during the northern summer season.

This strategic move will benefit customers of the largest US airline where they will have greater opportunity to make connections through its Atlantic Joint Business partner, British Airways, as well as other members of the Oneworld alliance. In addition, travelers will be able to have a more seamless experience between partner airlines and more convenient access to the six premium lounges of the leading UK carrier.

«By co-locating with 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 US and London. We aim to continue to elevate our customers’ experience,” said Jose Freig, vice president of international operations and premium guest services for American Airlines.

Through October 30, American Airlines services between London Heathrow (LHR) to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), and New York (JFK) will arrive and depart from Terminal 5, all flights will be operated on Boeing 777-200ER/-300ER aircraft.
