American Eagle To Launch Its First Nonstop Jet Service Between Charleston, W. Va., And New York’s LaGuardia Airport
New Nonstop Service Begins April 7, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas – American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will begin nonstop jet service between Yeager Airport in Charleston, W. Va. (CRW), and New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA), beginning April 7.
American Eagle will operate the service with 37-seat Embraer ERJ-135 jets.
“American Eagle is pleased to be the first airline to provide jet service between the State of West Virginia and New York City,” said American Eagle President and CEO Peter Bowler. “This service will allow our new customers from West Virginia the opportunity to fly anywhere in the world that American Airlines flies. Business customers will also have the ability to take a quick day trip to New York.”
“Reliable and affordable air service to and from West Virginia is enormously important in helping to maintain and attract economic development opportunities, not just from New York City, but from around the world. At a time when airlines are eliminating air service, American Eagle is stepping up to offer new services to West Virginians,” said Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV (D-WV). “Yeager Airport has always been an important gateway, and now, even more people can come to the Mountain State to start a new business or experience our breathtaking scenery. I commend American Eagle for offering this new route, and look forward to working with them to promote it.”
American and American Eagle currently offer nonstop service to 63 destinations on 222 daily flights from four New York area airports, with 100 daily flights from LaGuardia.
