New Nonstop Service Begins June 11, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will begin nonstop jet service between Montgomery (Ala.) Regional Airport (MGM) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), beginning June 11.
American Eagle will operate the service with 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jets.
"We are proud to bring American Eagle service back to Montgomery," said American Eagle President and CEO Peter Bowler. "This service will allow our new customers from Montgomery the opportunity to travel to western U.S. destinations that American Airlines or American Eagle fly to from our DFW Hub. Business customers will also have the ability to take a quick day trip to Dallas."
"Access to convenient air travel is crucial in today's business world," said Montgomery Mayor-elect Todd Strange. "The addition of American Eagle's flights will strengthen our status as a center for commerce. Members of our military, who are based in the River Region, will also benefit from these flights as they head to Texas and other western destinations. This development will eliminate the need for leisure passengers to drive to other airports to fly out west. It's great to have American Eagle back in the Capital City."
"I am extremely glad to hear that American Eagle is returning to Montgomery," said Acting Mayor Charles Jinright. "They will find our community ready for these new flights to the West. I would like to welcome American Eagle back and offer all the support I can to their success here."
