American Airlines is out with another international route expansion, serving Asia, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
From Tulum to Tokyo, here’s what’s on the table with American Airlines in the new year.
American Airlines Files New Service to Tokyo-Haneda
American Airlines is the only U.S. carrier to apply to begin service from New York (JFK) to Tokyo (HND), and the carrier is going through approvals to operate the route. Assuming it gets approved, it will follow this schedule:
- Depart New York JFK at 10:00 a.m., arrive into Tokyo Haneda the next day at 1:05 p.m.
- Depart Tokyo Haneda at 3:05 p.m., arrive into New York JFK at 3:10 p.m. the same day.
The flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-200, featuring business class, premium economy, and economy class.
Tokyo-Haneda is significantly closer to Tokyo city and is the preferred airport for almost all travelers, though flights still operate to the farther away Tokyo-Narita.
American Airlines Announces 3 Routes to Tulum
On March 28, 2024, American Airlines will begin service to Tulum, Mexico, as the new airport begins international service in the new year. Over recent months, several U.S. carriers have expanded to Tulum, and American is the latest to add flights to this airport.
