Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 5 May 2009

American Airlines has launched new daily nonstop flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to Madrid, Spain (MAD). American is flying the route with its 225-seat Boeing 767-300 widebody aircraft in a two-class configuration.

Flight 36, departs DFW at 5:30 p.m. and arrives in Madrid at 9:55 a.m. the next day - a flight lasting approximately 9 hours, 25 minutes. From Spain, Flight 37, will depart Madrid at 1:10 p.m to arrive at DFW at 4:45 p.m. the same day - a flight lasting approximately 10 hours, 35 minutes. All times are local.

"We are delighted to inaugurate this new service between DFW and Madrid," said Dan Garton, American's Executive Vice President - Marketing. "This flight is about opening up new business destinations, new leisure destinations, connecting cultures, and bringing forth new economic opportunities that previously did not exist."

Garton noted that American made the investment in this new route because of the belief that American's Joint Business Agreement and antitrust immunity application with British Airways and Iberia will be approved later this year. Once approved, Garton said he believes it will be the first of many other opportunities to enhance and expand connections between the United States and Europe, including DFW and North Texas.

Madrid will be the 34th international destination served by American and American Eagle from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub, depending on the season.

American, a founding member of the global oneworldŽAlliance, also serves Spain with two other daily nonstop flights - to Madrid from Miami International Airport and to Barcelona from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

To celebrate, American is offering a special AAdvantage promotion on the new route between DFW and Madrid, offering up to 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles for round trips booked through May 31, 2009, for travel between May 1, 2009 and May 31, 2009. Customers can earn 10,000 bonus miles in Business Class and 5,000 bonus miles in Economy Class.
