FORT WORTH, Texas – American Airlines and American Eagle further expand their presence in New York today by launching daily nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and five new destinations.

As previously announced, American begins daily service today from JFK to Rio de Janeiro (GIG), using 219-seat Boeing 767-300s configured with 28 Business Class and 191 Economy Class seats. In addition, American begins two daily flights from JFK to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), both using a 140-seat Boeing Super MD-80.

American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, also launched daily nonstop service between JFK and three U.S. destinations – Norfolk International Airport (ORF), Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), and Indianapolis International Airport (IND) – using 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets.

“American is delighted to introduce these new services from JFK, which underscores the depth and breadth of our New York presence,” said Art Torno, American’s Vice President – New York. “Whether for business or pleasure, across the country or around the world, our customers in New York enjoy convenient connections on American.”

American provides a global route network from its state-of-the-art terminal at JFK International Airport, which is further enhanced by its oneworld® Alliance membership. By 2011, New York customers will have access to approximately 290 daily departures on American and American Eagle to more than 80 destinations, including the new options for travel gained through American’s partnership with JetBlue Airways.
