    FORT WORTH, Texas, June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, today began nonstop jet service between Santa Fe Municipal Airport (SAF) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), operating the daily service with 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 jets.

    "This is an exciting day for American Eagle, and we are proud to launch the first commercial jet service to Santa Fe in decades," said American Eagle President and CEO Peter Bowler. "Just in time for the city's 400th birthday, this new service will make New Mexico's capital more accessible and convenient for visitors from around the country and around the world.

    "We're also delighted to take this opportunity to announce additional service to Santa Fe. With daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport beginning November 19, Eagle will offer convenient service to the West Coast on comfortable regional jets."

    "I am thrilled that American Eagle is leading the way in returning commercial air service to Santa Fe with flights now to Dallas and soon to Los Angeles," said New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. "Commercial air service is key to the economic development of the area and to growing New Mexico's thriving tourism and film industries."

    "Santa Fe continues to be a popular destination in the Southwest," said Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM). "New commercial air service through American Eagle will provide more visitors and residents with an easy and convenient way to get to and from New Mexico's capital."
