American Airlines to fly out of Heathrow Terminal 5

American Airlines has begun operating all flights out of Heathrow Terminal 5. Terminal 5 is home of British Airways, American Airlines’ joint transatlantic business partner and fellow Oneworld member.

The US airline is to operate four sailing flights between Terminal 5 and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK), Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Miami (MIA). American Airlines is using hubs like Heathrow to rebuild its international network. 

“Moving American’s operations to Terminal 5 for the first time will greatly improve the customer travel experience, enabling faster and easier connections by working closely alongside our valued joint business partners,” said Rhett Workman, Managing Director Europe & Asia-Pacific. “While our surroundings may have changed, the safety of our customers and team members remains of paramount importance and we are working tirelessly with our partners and the airport to ensure we continue to offer a safe travel experience.”
