New American Eagle flights between Chattanooga and Dallas/Fort Worth

American Eagle begins new flights between Chattanooga and Dallas/Fort Worth; special introductory fare of $109* each way



FORT WORTH, Texas, June 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will add nonstop service between Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport beginning Aug. 1.

To celebrate, the airline is offering a special introductory fare for travel between the two cities for travel through September. For just $109* each way (based on a round-trip purchase on the American Airlines/American Eagle Web site, AA.com), American Eagle can jet you between Chattanooga and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on the carrier's new daily round trip flight aboard its 44-seat ERJ-140 jets.

"Today's announcement is great news for Chattanoogans and travelers throughout the region," said U.S. Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN). "Expanding air service creates jobs and supports economic growth by giving travelers more options and drawing business investment to the region. This will bring new opportunities to the region and benefits to travelers, businesses and all Tennesseans."

"It is exciting to see real progress with air service in and out of Chattanooga," said U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN). "An American Eagle direct flight to Dallas/Fort Worth is a major step in opening up more direct service to markets across the nation for business, industry and the citizens of the Tennessee Valley. I want to thank the airport authority's leadership for their excellent work on this and other efforts to improve our air service. Their efforts will pay big dividends in terms of economic development and quality of life. I am honored to be a part of a congressional delegation that helps to get good things done for Tennessee."

"Our community's diligent and aggressive efforts to enhance air service are reaping great dividends," said Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield. "We are thrilled that American Eagle has chosen to expand its presence in this market by adding direct service to Dallas/Fort Worth. Today's announcement is very exciting and illustrates that as travelers from this region continue to fly from Chattanooga, carriers will respond by providing more options with competitively priced fares."

"The unwavering support of local business and community leaders has created steady passenger growth at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, which has made this community more attractive to airlines," said Mike Landguth, President and CEO of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority. "We thank American Eagle for their expression of confidence in our community and look forward to making this service a success."

The new service to Dallas/Fort Worth is in addition to the carrier's two daily nonstop flights from Chattanooga to Chicago O'Hare.
