PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- You can now travel non-stop from Philadelphia International Airport to Edinburgh, Scotland.
American Airlines kicked off daily service Tuesday evening.
There was a big cake and a send-off for the crew and passengers.
The flight took off just before 9 p.m. and it takes just over seven hours to get to Edinburgh.
More direct flights to Europe will be added later this year.
