Nonstop Flights From L.A. To Include Bentonville
ArkansasBusiness.com – American Airlines is adding nonstop flights to more cities from Los Angeles, where it’s battling United, Southwest and other airlines for dominance.
American said Wednesday that it will begin service to Eugene, Ore., and Redmond airport, near Bend, Ore., on June 12; and Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Columbus, Ohio; Hartford, Conn., and Bentonville, Ark., on Aug. 27. It began flights between Los Angeles and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., last week.
American is also seeking government approval to fly between Los Angeles and Sao Paulo, Brazil, beginning in November.
Los Angeles is one of American’s five key markets in the U.S. It’s trying to beef up ahead of its announced merger with US Airways Group Inc. American said the new service would give it 51 U.S. and international destinations from Los Angeles International Airport.
