Richmond International Airport, VA (May 28, 2019) – Announcing enhancements to its upcoming winter schedule, American Airlines has added three daily flights between Richmond International Airport (RIC) and New York (JFK) starting November 21, 2019.

“Richmond is a welcome addition to our various non-stop options and a very important city in our growing destination portfolio for New Yorkers,” said Jim Carter, Vice President of Sales, for American’s Eastern Division.

The new JFK flights join American’s existing service between Richmond and Charlotte (CLT), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Miami (MIA), New York LaGuardia (LGA), and Philadelphia (PHL). Tickets for all routes are available for purchase at www.aa.com.
