American Airlines are launching direct flights from Birmingham Airport to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. The first one will departure on 8 May 2015.

Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport CEO expects this to bring more tourists into our region as well as strengthening business relations with North America and Canada. “Last year, the West Midlands exported £4.5 billion worth of goods to North America and has the largest trade surplus with North America of any UK region, and with global brands such as JLR, JCB, Cadbury and Kraft trading both locally and in the US, this is an important link for Midlands’ business”.
