Today, American Airlines, one of the largest carriers in the world, announced the launch of new seasonal service between Prague and Chicago. The airline will operate the route with modern Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.
American Airlines announced the news, along with all of the new destinations in the carrier’s network as part of new 2020 summer schedule. The connection will be available to passengers five times a week from 8 May (departure from Chicago) to 24 October.
