Philadelphia International Airport
American Airlines:  Airbus A330


 

American Airlines currently operates multiple daily flights out of their Philadelphia International Airport hub to select domestic and international destinations using the Airbus A330.    As of August 1, 2016, American currently operates a total of 24 A330s in their fleet - aircraft that were all delivered to US Airways prior to the merger.  Fifteen aircraft are of the short-body A330-200 and nine are of the A330-300 variety.  American has plans to retire the A330-300 fleet before the end of the decade.

Over a period of time between January 2014 and July 2016 these aircraft have operated routes to Amsterdam, Boston, Cancun, Charlotte, Dublin, Frankfurt, London-Heathrow, Madrid, Manchester (UK), Miami, Munich, Orlando, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Punta Cana, Rome-Fiumicino, San Juan, St. Maarten, and Tampa. Seasonally they operate to Athens, Barcelona, Venice-Marco Polo, and Zurich (though in 2016 this has become a 767-300ER route).

It should be noted in the winter months A330s are routinely flown from PHL to Boston, Cancun, Charlotte, Miami, Orlando, Punta Cana, San Juan, St. Maarten, and Tampa on a daily basis.

The A330 fleet was quickly painted into the new American livery and none currently wear any special markings or decals.
