American adding 1 flight on newer craft

Post Date:05/17/2019

American Airlines is adding an early morning flight from San Angelo Regional Airport to Dallas on a newer, larger aircraft beginning June 7.

The 6:45 a.m. flight to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport will be aboard a jet with 76 seats, 12 of which will be in first class. The ERJ-175 is the newest aircraft in American’s regional fleet and is fully equipped with Wi-Fi service. Airport Director Jeremy Valgardson said he hopes the newer planes will result in fewer delays and cancellations.

“This is also a good test to determine whether San Angelo can sustain more flights,” Valgardson said. “We have been a proven market for additional flights in the past, and our current load factors are quite high.”

With the added flight, American will offer six departures to and six arrivals from DFW daily. The remaining flights will continue to be on E-140s, an aircraft that will eventually be phased out and replaced by the ERI-175.
