American Airlines adds eight routes; launches Dublin from New York JFK

American Airlines linked New York JFK and Dublin with daily services last week, a move that creates new opportunities within the oneworld alliance, with onward connections to Europe available from British Airways and Iberia. Celebrating in New York were Mike McKanna, American Airlines’ MD JFK (first left); Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America (second right) and the crew operating the inaugural flight.

American Airlines’ return to Eugene in Oregon was celebrated with a special cake and the traditional water arch upon arrival. Assisting the ceremony were Tim Doll, Eugene Airport’s Director; David Hauser, Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce President; and Will Livsey, American Airlines’ Network Planning. Eugene Airport also prepared a short movie from the event, which you can watch  here .
