American Airlines opens a direct route to Philadelphia and enhances connectivity between the United States and the French Riviera

This Tuesday, May 7, American Airlines landed for the first time on the tarmac of Nice Côte d’Azur airport with a flight from Philadelphia, a new destination operated directly to and from the United States.

The network of destinations with direct connectivity with the United States continues to grow. After Atlanta last year, it is now the powerful hub of American Airlines, the world’s leading passenger airline, which is now connected to the Côte d’Azur. Flights are operated daily until October 6.

We warmly thank American Airlines for its trust and for this new direct-operated route to the United States, synonymous with saving time and reducing emissions. It demonstrates the growing attractiveness of our territory among Americans, more and more of whom go to the Côte d’Azur every year, and responds to our desire to always better connect our territory to major cities around the world.explains Franck Goldnadel, chairman of the board of directors of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.

Philadelphia is one of the hubs of American Airlines, which offers more than 140 destinations there.

José Freig, American Airlines Vice President in charge of International Operations: We are delighted to officially kick off the summer season in Europe with the launch of our new Nice-Philadelphia service. Our daily flight to the French Riviera offers our guests a new opportunity to experience the azure waters, gastronomy and rich culture that the French Riviera offers. We therefore look forward to working alongside our partners at Nice Airport to further enrich their experience in the south of France.
