American Eagle Airlines Adds Third Grand Junction, Colo., Flight for the Busy Summer Travel Season

American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will add a third flight between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Grand Junction Regional Airport (GJT), beginning July 2.

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

"The Western Slope community has been very supportive of our service," said Gary Foss, Vice President - Marketing and Planning for American Eagle. "We wanted to add an additional flight this summer, and we are confident that the community will support it."

"American Airlines has been a great partner to work with, and the addition of a third American flight is good news for all of us. More flight options makes Grand Junction just that much more desirable to the travelers and business people who help support our economy. It also means more choice for those of us who live here, which is always a good thing," said Jim Doody, Mayor of Grand Junction.
