SPAIN / USA - American Airlines (AA) has introduced direct services between New York’s JFK and Madrid’s Barajas airport. AA states that the new route will complement the carrier's existing flights between Miami and Madrid and Dallas/Fort Worth and Madrid as well as their service between Barcelona and New York.

The new service will employ Boeing 757-200 aircraft and will depart from Madrid each day at 10am, providing for an early arrival the same business day at New York JFK and offering an ideal platform for express operators in the Madrid area.

The return flight also provides a similar connection with flights departing JFK at 17.40 for a 07.20 arrival at Madrid Barajas.

Commenting on the new service AA Cargo's regional manager, Kathleen Lesage said that: “Our commitment to Spain is further enhanced with this new service which offers the freight community around Madrid great access to American Airlines onward connections to South and Central America from JFK.

“As our third service from Madrid directly into the USA we believe it shows our customers the truly pan-American nature of the service we are able to offer them wherever the final destination of their cargo”.

As part of its launch programme for the Madrid-JFK route, American Airlines Cargo is extending promotional rates which are currently in place through to the end of May for all customers. For complete details, visit their website here.
