Comments


AA Vice President of PHX Hub Operations, Sophia Philis-Ortiz, said “Although we’ve not yet reached the halfway point of the summer travel season, we’re already focusing on how we can best serve our customers this winter. Thanks to the additional flight offerings, we will be providing additional seat capacity that allows us to welcome more customers in Phoenix than we did last winter.”

“American is an essential business partner and we couldn’t be more pleased with their continued growth and investment in Phoenix. We’re also excited to see American will be launching nonstop service to Jacksonville, Florida, an entirely new market for us.”
