FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will increase its service to Roswell, N.M., beginning April 5, 2011, adding a fourth daily round trip between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Roswell International Air Center (ROW). Eagle flies 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets between DFW and Roswell.
"We are delighted to add another flight to Roswell, providing customers with more options throughout the day," said Gary Foss, Vice President – Planning and Marketing for American's regional network. "The community has been extremely supportive of our service since it began in 2007.

Roswell is a thriving community, home to a number of military and law enforcement agencies, including the New Mexico Military Institute, established in 1891, and the International Law Enforcement Academy. The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is located in nearby Artesia.
