American Airlines will begin twice daily nonstop flights from Chicago to
Sacramento, Calif., effective June 10. “We are delighted to add these flights to our schedule this summer,” said Thomas Aichele, American’s managing director - Passenger Sales in Chicago.
“Many of our local customers have asked to have a nonstop flight to
Sacramento, which is a convenient gateway to Northern California.
“I also expect many travelers from the East Coast and New England areas
will be pleased that they can make easy connections via O’Hare to the
capital of our nation’s most populous state.
“The new Sacramento flights are a complement to our summer seasonal
flights to Anchorage and Vancouver, British Columbia, which also resume in
June,” Aichele added. “Flights to one of our favorite summer European
destinations, Glasgow, Scotland, will resume on May 1 and we’ll add a
fifth daily flight to London’s Heathrow Airport on May 1 as well.
“Our summer seasonal scheduled service is in lieu of our winter seasonal
flights to Mountain States ski cities. The flights to ski destinations
will return next winter,” said Aichele.
