A new daily service between Edinburgh and Philadelphia will commence from April next year, adding another US destination at the airport.

The American Airlines service will operate from 2nd April to 26th October and extends the airport’s reach into North America with flights to Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Boston and Toronto.

Flights to Philadelphia will be on a 757 aircraft and are now on sale.

The Philadelphia route will see American Airlines redeploy aircraft from its current route to New York JFK.
