American Airlines to launch eight new domestic routes this fall


American Airlines, together with US Airways, today announces the addition of eight new domestic routes from its hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Philadelphia and Phoenix, providing customers increased access to the combined airline's global network.


Scheduled to launch this fall, the new routes include service to five destinations in the Midwest, including Bismarck, North Dakota, a new destination for the combined carrier.


Beginning Sept. 3, 2014, customers in Grand Rapids, Michigan (GRR) will have access to twice-daily nonstop regional service to both Charlotte and Philadelphia. These routes will be operated as US Airways Express with Bombardier CRJs.


The remaining routes will launch Oct. 2 and include service between:

  • Charlotte and Evansville, Indiana (EVV), operated three times per day as US Airways Express with a Bombardier CRJ
  • Charlotte and Fort Wayne, Indiana (FWA), operated daily as US Airways Express with a Bombardier CRJ
  • Chicago and Bismarck (BIS), operated daily as American Eagle with an Embraer ERJ-145
  • Dallas/Fort Worth and Bismarck, operated daily as American Eagle with an Embraer ERJ-145
  • Philadelphia and Fort Wayne, Indiana, operated twice-daily as US Airways Express with a Bombardier CRJ
  • Phoenix and Cleveland (CLE), operated daily by US Airways with an Airbus A32.


"As we work to fully integrate our two networks, we remain committed to expanding our domestic service to better serve our customers in small- and medium-size markets," said Chuck Schubert, vice president of network and schedule planning. "By building our network presence in these regional markets, we are providing more people in more places access to our global network covering more than 330 destinations in more than 50 countries around the world."
