Car Hire Birmingham Airport are delighted with the new American destination on offer from the airport for 2015.
New direct flights will begin in May 2015 from Birmingham Airport to J F Kennedy Airport in New York.
The flight will arrive from JFK into Birmingham at 7.10am local UK time and will depart for its return leg at 10am arriving into New York JFK at 12.55pm local US time. It is hoped the route will boost tourism and trade between the cities.
Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive, said “This new route will not only create more capacity to this vibrant US business and tourist destination, it will also broaden connectivity and choice from the Midlands with American Airlines across North America and Canada and see the return of a British Airways flight code to Birmingham. 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.”
