American Airlines to Launch Service Between New York JFK and Doha, Qatar From June 7, 2022
As part of their deepening relationship with Qatar Airways, American Airlines will launch service from New York-JFK to Doha, Qatar from June 7, 2022. The carrier will also resume seasonal service to popular transatlantic destinations such as Barcelona, Lisbon and Venice.
On Thursday (December 9, 2021), American Airlines announced the launch of new service to Doha, Qatar from June 7, 2022, as part of their deepening relationship with Qatar Airways. Customers traveling to Doha will enjoy seamless onward connections to the African continent, Indian Ocean resorts and beyond. Additionally, seasonal routes to customer favorite destinations like Barcelona, Lisbon and Venice will return to American’s summer 2022 schedule, and seasonal service to Athens and Rome will launch earlier than in previous years.
In Thursday’s announcement, American Airlines’ Vice President of Network Planning, Brian Znotins, said,
“We continue to creatively find ways to build a network that gets customers where they want to go when they are ready to travel. Adding Doha to our expansive global network and resuming a significant portion of our European routes provides our customers with more choices as they plan next year’s vacations.”
Also commenting on American’s new Doha service, Qatar Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori, said,
“We look forward to welcoming our oneworld partner and friends at American Airlines to our home airport in Doha, recently voted the World’s Best Airport, and offer connectivity to numerous business and leisure destinations across the region and beyond.”
Due to continued delivery delays of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, American will not resume service to Edinburgh Scotland (EDI) or Shannon, Ireland (SNN) in 2022. Additionally, as a result of weak demand, the carrier is discontinuing service to Hong Kong (HKG). All widebody aircraft currently being used on short-haul routes in the Caribbean, Latin America and Mexico will be redeployed to popular transatlantic routes. This spring, American will resume service from Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT) to Rome (FCO), and startup seasonal service to both FCO and Athens, Greece (ATH) will start earlier.
American Airlines’ purpose is to “care for people on life’s journey.” Shares in the American Airlines Group, Inc., trade on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol AAL and the company’s stock is included in the S&P 500.
