Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 27 July 2005

American Airlines is to begin service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newcastle, in England's booming North East region.

American will begin serving the route on May 1, 2006, using 188-seat Boeing 757 aircraft with all-coach seating.

Newcastle is at the center of the UK's commercially thriving North East region. Its airport, Newcastle International, is the fastest-growing regional airport in the UK. More than 2.5 million people visited Newcastle in 2003, the most recent year in which figures are available.

Newcastle was once known for its coal mining and ship building. Today it features numerous multinational companies in the region and many impressive historic and cultural sites, not to mention its world-famous Newcastle Brown Ale, which was first brewed in 1890.

"England's Northeast and Newcastle are undergoing impressive economic and cultural growth," said Henry Joyner, American's Senior Vice President-Planning. "This new route will provide convenient service in both directions for business and leisure travelers alike. We're delighted to bring Newcastle its first-ever nonstop service to and from New York."

The new route will also provide an important cargo link between New York and Newcastle, adding another flight to the 300 tons of cargo capacity American currently flies each day between the United States and UK.
