American Airlines today announced that its AmericanConnection carriers will add a daily round trip flight to seven cities from Lambert St. Louis International Airport effective Sept. 5.

"Our corporate travelers have indicated a desire to have more service into and out of St. Louis and these flights will offer them that opportunity," said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, American's Managing Director -- St. Louis Hub. "For example, we will now be offering travelers the option of taking a morning flight from St. Louis to Tulsa and we expect it will be very popular."

-- Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for a total of three daily flights 
-- Charlotte, N.C., for a total of four daily flights 
-- Dayton, Ohio for a total of three daily flights 
-- New Orleans, La., for a total of four daily flights 
-- Newark, N.J., for a total of six daily flights 
-- Springfield, Mo., for a total of two daily flights 
-- Tulsa, Okla., for a total of three daily flights

Separately, as part of a restructuring of its Dallas Love Field schedule, American Airlines announced that AmericanConnection will cease service between Love Field and St. Louis effective September 5.
