American Airlines has announced a new Philadelphia to Nice flight from May 2024, making it easier than ever for North Americans to visit the Côte d’Azur. 

Days after Monaco Life reported an uptick in the number of American tourists visiting – and splashing the cash in – the French Riviera, an exciting new transatlantic service has been announced for next year. 

From May 2024, American Airlines will be operating a daily connection between Nice and the east coast US city of Philadelphia.  

“After United and Delta, this new destination via the Aeroport de Nice rewards our efforts to make [Nice] ever more attractive,” said Nice’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, on social media.  

The airline has also revealed that it will be expanding direct access to two other European cities next summer, Naples and Copenhagen, from Philadelphia. This is American Airline’s biggest expansion in four years, and tickets will go on sale for the new routes on 20th August.  


This destination joins a number of other North American direct routings from Nice: New York City, Atlanta and Montreal.  

A plan is reportedly in the works for a Nice-Miami flight too, which would make access to the Caribbean and Central and South America much more convenient, as well as give visitors a chance to easily get to one of America’s most vibrant cities, which boasts a strong French community of around 40,000 people.
