CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - American Airlines announced this week that they plan to add a new direct flight from Charlotte to Europe.
The new service will take off from the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport and land at the Munich Airport, near Munich, Germany beginning March 31, 2019.
This new flight will be the first international long-haul flight launched by American Airlines from Charlotte since 2014, officials said.
"The City of Charlotte is thrilled American Airlines is adding another European destination from Charlotte," said Mayor Vi Lyles. "We know that American continues to invest in its hub at CLT because of the great business economy we have here in the region, and the cost-effective, efficient operation we maintain at the airport."
The new flights will be operated by a two-class Airbus 330-200 aircraft featuring Premium Economy.
American's flights will be available for sale on Monday, August 27.
