American Airlines is opening up new options for summer travel with additional flights to more cities across the U.S., as well as two new flights to Europe.
In summer 2019, 18 new routes will start, including flights to Montana’s Glacier Park International Airport—a new destination for American Airlines—with service from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Los Angeles International Airport, and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. American Airlines is also returning to Canada’s Halifax Stanfield International Airport in Nova Scotia with service from Philadelphia International Airport and LaGuardia Airport in New York. In addition, the airline will increase summer service from Dallas to Madrid and Paris starting June 6.
“With 18 new routes, we are committed to providing the most choices for our customers across the U.S. and a chance to see the world,” said Vasu Raja, v.p. of network and schedule planning for American, in press materials.
American continues to grow its largest hub, Dallas, with the increase to 900 flights per day in summer 2019. American will add five new routes from DFW beginning in April with service to San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport in California. In May, the airline will launch new daily service to Myrtle Beach International Airport in South Carolina. Then in June, in addition to the Montana flights, American will begin year-round service to Harrisburg International Airport in Pennsylvania and daily seasonal service to California’s wine country via Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa.
Other new routes include Phoenix to Raleigh; Chicago to Manchester, New Hampshire, Durango, Colorado, and Kalispell, Montana; LaGuardia to Columbia, South Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; Daytona Beach, Florida; Jackson, Wyoming; and Nova Scotia; plus Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport to Melbourne, Florida.
