MIAMI – American Airlines (AA) has announced it is adding six news flights and two new destinations to its Western US flight network.

New Services to Western US Leisure Destinations

One of the new AA routes is from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Phoenix (PHX) hubs to Idaho Falls (IDA). With these flights, AA returns to the eastern Idaho city for the first time since the mid-1990s. Flights from both cities start on June 3, 2021, and will operate once daily, the portal said.

SkyWest Airlines (OO) will operate the flights, using Bombardier CRJ-700 jets, which seat up to 65 passengers.

In addition to the IDA route, AA is also launching services between PHX and Arcata-Eureka airport (ACV), in Northern California. The route is scheduled to start on June 3, also operated by OO’s CRJ-700s.

In addition to the new year-round services, American is also launching three new seasonal routes to Western US leisure destinations, a common trend for post-COVID travel.

“American’s expansion in Bozeman, Montana will continue” as AA announces its seventh destination from the gateway city for Yellowstone National Park. Furthermore, AA’s Bozeman-Phoenix flights are set to start on June 3, the report states, adding that Mesa Airlines (YV) will operate the route with its CRJ-900s.

American Eagle is also adding seasonal services between Los Angeles (LAX) and Grand Junction (GJT) and Missoula (MSO).

These last two destinations will be serviced out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) between June 3 and August 16, according to Airline Geeks, adding that those will again be flown with OO’s CRJ-700s. Flights to GJT will only run on Saturdays, while the other routes will have daily services.
