American Airlines launches nonstop service from London to Phoenix

Aug 28, 2018

LONDON (August 28, 2018) – American Airlines announced it is launching a new nonstop flight between London and Phoenix, Arizona, beginning March 31. American Airlines will initially operate the new service from March 31 to October 26, 2019.

This added service helps meet the heightened demand from UK travelers wanting to visit Arizona—a holiday destination in the American Southwest known for its warm weather, desert scenery, American Indian culture, outdoor adventure, wellness resorts and, of course, the Grand Canyon.

The new service also indicates a growing international demand out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which is known as “America’s Friendliest Airport.” Earlier this year, American Airlines’ Atlantic joint business partner, British Airways, brought back an additional nonstop flight between London and Phoenix, which began March 27. British Airways initially operated the added service on Tuesdays and Fridays, and on May 6 an additional Sunday flight commenced. 

“Arizona is the heart of the American Southwest, which is a region so many British travelers love,” said Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “And Phoenix is, by far, the easiest fly-in destination for a visit to Grand Canyon National Park and all the activities at the south and north rims. Of course, the Grand Canyon is just one of 22 national parks and monuments in Arizona, and Brits who have traveled here before tend to want to see more parks, more dramatic landscapes, more Arizona cities and towns. This additional nonstop flight makes it easier to do that.”

Customers will be able to book the new flight beginning Aug. 27. Departure times and fares will soon be announced.
