American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, today started three new daily round-trip flights between Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Los Angeles International Airport. The new service will be operated with 63-seat Bombardier CRJ-700 jets featuring two-class cabins.
“We’re delighted to launch our service from Houston to American’s cornerstone hub in Los Angeles,” said Gary Foss, Vice President – Planning and Marketing for American’s regional network. “With three daily nonstop flights, customers from Houston will have even more travel options throughout the day, as well as more convenient connections through American’s Los Angeles cornerstone hub and the oneworld® global network. Favored destinations from Houston include San Francisco, Sacramento, Hawaii, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.”
The new Los Angeles flights also complement existing American and American Eagle service to American’s cornerstone hubs in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami. All this is part of a major expansion of the Los Angeles cornerstone hub that will see more than 30 flights added today to 15 communities for a total of over 150 daily flights.
