American and American Eagle Will Launch Dallas Love Field Service on March 2 With 16 Flights a Day

American Will Serve Love Field to St. Louis and Kansas City; American Eagle Will Operate From Love Field to San Antonio and Austin

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — American Airlines announced today that it and its regional affiliate, American Eagle, will begin service at Dallas Love Field on March 2, 2006, with a total of 16 flights a day.

American will operate four flights a day between Love Field and St. Louis, and three flights daily on the Love Field-Kansas City route, with 136-seat MD80 jets featuring first-class as well as coach service. American Eagle will fly four times a day between Love Field and San Antonio, Tex., and five times a day between Love and Austin, Tex., using 50-seat Embraer 145 Regional-Jet aircraft.

“We have not, and will not, abandon our efforts in support of the Wright Amendment and all those in North Texas who want to keep DFW International Airport strong, vibrant and growing,” said Dan Garton, American’s Executive Vice President of Marketing. “DFW is the region’s greatest economic engine and was always intended to be the home for all commercial air service in Dallas/Fort Worth. American remains intensely devoted to that principle. However, we have made it clear for many years that if Love Field were opened to longer-haul service, American must compete at Love Field in order to retain the large number of American Airlines customers who live closer to Love Field than to DFW.”

Garton said American and American Eagle will be devoting substantial energy over the next three months to providing a solid, professional customer experience at Love Field.

American, which owns the rights to three gates at Love Field, will require two gates for the March 2 schedule, one for American and the other for American Eagle. The airline is working with airport officials on arrangements for ticket counters and other facilities with which to service its customers efficiently. The airline said it and American Eagle will be ready to open at Love Field on March 2 and will provide more details about its facilities there in coming weeks.

Here are American’s and American Eagle’s Love Field schedules, effective March 2:
