American Airlines to Launch Miami-Frankfurt Route in 2015
American Airlines said it will continue to expand its Miami hub, including adding a non-stop flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
The Fort Worth-based airline recently announced plans for new routes out of Miami, linking the city to Austin, Kansas City, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City. It also recently began service between Miami and Cap-Haitien, Haiti.
Speaking in front of a group of journalists, Doug Parker, the airline’s CEO, said that American would restart its Miami-Frankfurt route in the first half of 2015, although he declined to provide further details.
The route is currently serviced year-round by Lufthansa, which operates an A380 between the two cities, and seasonally by leisure carrier Condor Flugdienst. American previously flew Miami-Frankfurt in the period 1995-1997.
American’s expansion at Miami International Airport has caused it to run out of gates at the North Terminal, and it is now also operating flights out of Concourse E, which is undergoing renovations. American plans to take over an additional seven gates at this concourse.
