Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and American Airlines are excited to announce new daily air service for passengers.

Beginning June 7, 2018, American Airlines will offer nonstop service to Charlotte Douglas (CLT) and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International airports. The two airports serve as two of American Airlines’ largest hubs, opening up east and west coast destinations for local passengers.

American Airlines operates more than 760 flights daily from DFW, providing access to more than 206 destinations in 30 countries, including recently announced service to Iceland and returning service to Venice and Amsterdam this summer. American is also offering passengers even more options through their strong east coast connector from CLT with more than 675 daily flights to more than 156 destinations in 25 countries.

The world’s largest airline rounds out ECP’s list of elite airline partners as American Airlines joins the ranks of Delta, Southwest and United to bring passengers even more service to destinations across the United States, and seamless global connections.

“We are thrilled to welcome American Airlines to ECP and provide our passengers with more nonstop destinations and easy access to global connections through hubs like Dallas/Fort Worth and Charlotte Douglas,” said Parker W. McClellan, Jr., A.A.E., airport Executive Director. “As we move into our eighth year, we are proud of the growth of our Airport which wouldn’t be possible without the strong support of our local partners and board members.”

This new announcement, in addition to ongoing service from Delta, Southwest and United Airlines, continues to put Northwest Florida on the map and ensure additional opportunities to the region. The new year-round American Airlines flights will be operated by a CRJ-700, with nine seats in First and 56 in Main Cabin, for a total of 65 seats.
