FORT WORTH, Texas – American Airlines today announces daily nonstop service between Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) and Miami International Airport (MIA), further strengthening its position as a premier provider for travel between Europe, the US and beyond. Through American’s extensive network from Miami, customers travelling from Milan will now have access to more than 100 destinations throughout the United States, Caribbean and Latin America. Customers can begin booking travel on the new route June 2, for travel beginning Nov. 21.
The announcement comes as American celebrates five years of flying from Milan, Malpensa to New York JFK.
“As the home to a growing Italian population and one of the world’s key fashion industry markets, Miami continues to be a preferred destination for travel from Milan,” said Marilyn DeVoe, American’s Vice President – Miami. “This new route enhances our expanding global network and provides our European customers a gateway to many Caribbean and Latin America destinations from our Miami hub.”
"Miami is one of the world's top business and leisure destinations, so it is important to provide travellers from around the globe easy access to our community's trade, commerce and tourism opportunities," said Carlos A. Gimenez, Mayor, Miami-Dade County. "With this new route, American Airlines demonstrates its commitment to enhancing Miami's position as a premier travel destination and helps to advance the area's economic growth."
“Today we celebrate our five year anniversary of flying from Milan Malpensa to New York JFK” said Roberto Antonucci, American’s Regional Sales Manager Southeast Europe. “There is no better way to recognise all the people that have contributed to that route’s success than by introducing this new and exciting service to Miami. It is great for the Italian market because not only does it open up extensive onward connections to the US, Latin America and the Caribbean, it will also bring in around 80,000 people per year to Milan, boosting the local economy.”
The new service between Miami and Milan is operated as part of American’s transatlantic joint business agreement with British Airways and Iberia. Through the airlines’ enhanced relationship, American’s customers have access to more than 125 destinations throughout Europe. In addition to the new service from Miami, American also currently serves MXP from its John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) hub in New York. The new route will be operated with a Boeing 767-300 with 218 seats.
