A Global Airline

Global Airline

American, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection® airlines serve 250 cities in over 40 countries with, on average, more than 3,400 daily flights. American Airlines offers up to 37 daily non-stop departures from Europe to the US. The combined network fleet numbers nearly 900 aircraft. American Airlines is a founding member of the oneworld® Alliance, which brings together some of the best and biggest names in the airline business, enabling them to offer their customers more services and benefits than any airline can provide on its own. Together, its members serve almost 900 destinations in over 150 countries and territories.

Our success is built upon the breadth of our network and frequency of our flights. From Italy, American Airlines offers a non-stop flight from Milan to New York, as well as seasonal non-stop flights from Rome to New York (4 April - 11 November 2012) and Chicago (4 April - 29 October 2012) with connections that are carefully timed to meet our connecting flights on to over 250 cities throughout the Americas.

In addition to these non-stop services from Milan and Rome, American Airlines offers daily flights from Brussels, Zurich, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, London Heathrow, Manchester, Dublin, Helsinki and Budapest to seven U.S. gateway cities (New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Raleigh Durham, Miami and Dallas/Fort Worth) with connections across the U.S. and into Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Japan, China and India.

85 Years of History

On April 15, 1926, Charles Lindbergh, Robertson Aircraft Corporation's chief pilot flew a bag of mail in a DH-4 biplane from Chicago to St. Louis. This flight is regarded as the first regularly scheduled flight of what was to become American Airlines. A big fleet is required to fly our passengers to over 250 destinations throughout the Americas. We deliver around 94 million customers to their destinations each year.
