    American Eagle Airlines Adds Fourth Flight to Mobile Regional Airport

    FORT WORTH, Texas, June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Eagle Airlines announced today that it will add a fourth daily flight between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Mobile Regional Airport (MOB) in Mobile, Ala., beginning Aug. 1, 2009.

    American Eagle will operate the service with 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets.

    "We're pleased to be increasing our service between the DFW Metroplex and Mobile with this new flight," said Peter Bowler, President and CEO of American Eagle. "It is a direct result of the support and partnership between the Mobile community and American Eagle and a testament to the Mobile area economy in these tough times."

    "News of American Eagle adding a fourth flight into Mobile increases our business leaders' travel options, which continues to be an important issue for us," said Win Hallett, President of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce. "We could not be happier than to hear that American Eagle sees Mobile as a growing market. The Mobile Area Chamber commends the Mobile Airport Authority for its hard work and commitment to business and leisure travelers in this market."

    "We're thrilled that American Eagle is adding additional service," said Bill Sisson, Executive Director of the Mobile Airport Authority. "Nothing makes us happier than when our existing carriers are successful and growing in our market."

    "This is wonderful news for the meetings business. It will give Mobile an advantage as a viable destination with a better array of air lift options for meeting planners and leisure markets as well," said Leon Maisel, President and CEO of the Mobile Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau.

    "American Eagle has been a strong community partner since they began serving Mobile in June 2005," said Thomas G. Hughes, Director of Aviation for the Mobile Airport Authority. "Added frequencies will offer passengers greater flexibility and more options when flying west and beyond."
