FORT WORTH, Texas, March 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will offer a new round-trip nonstop flight between Quad Cities International Airport in Moline, Ill., and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport beginning June 9. The new flight will feature a 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jet.

“Our new service between Moline and DFW is timed to provide travelers the opportunity to connect with international flights bound for the business centers and beaches of Mexico and South America, or to dozens of cities throughout the United States, once they arrive at American’s largest hub,” said American Eagle President Peter Bowler. The return flight from DFW to Moline is timed to connect with flights arriving in the morning from Latin America.

“We are pleased to be providing these new flights and we appreciate the support we’ve received from officials and business leaders in the Quad Cities. We look forward to strengthening these partnerships in the future,” Bowler added.

“This is good news for residents and businesses of the Quad Cities. The Quad Cities Airport and the neighboring communities in Illinois and Iowa worked hard to add American Eagle regional jet service between the Quad Cities and Dallas-Fort Worth,” said U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois. “Travelers in the Quad Cities will now have more flight options and access to destinations around the world.”

“The Quad Cities region is very pleased with American Eagle’s decision to offer nonstop jet service to Dallas/Ft. Worth in June,” said Bruce Carter, Director of Aviation at the Quad City International Airport. “We also thank our political leaders in Washington, especially Sen. Durbin and his capable staff, who helped us secure this new flight. Years of hard work have finally paid off and the Quad City Airport will continue to offer competitive and reliable service for our customers.”
