American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia announce new routes

Posted:

LONDON (WKOW) -- New routes are in the works for several airlines. It could mean faster travel times in the air.

American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia have announced new routes as they launch their transatlantic joint business on Wednesday.

The three airlines say that the tie-up will give customers more access to cheaper fares, bigger choice of flight times and easier connecting journeys.

Among the new routes are New York to Budapest, Chicago to Helsinki and London to San Diego.

The airlines have also placed code shares on a significant number of additional routes, greatly increasing the number of destination choices available to customers.

The closer ties between the trio have worried rival airlines -- Virgin Atlantic Airways is concerned about BA's dominance at Heathrow Airport.
