American Airlines to directly connect Duluth and Chicago from May 19’

Published on : Thursday, January 24, 2019

American Airlines will commence non-stop direct service between Duluth International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport, both ways, with two daily flights from May, 23. 2019.

 

 

Tom Werner, Airport Executive Director, said that the market growth of Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, the two carriers currently serving Duluth, contributed to American’s decision to bring service here. More flight options boost local economy. Duluth truly is on the rise.

 

 

 

More flights will lead to competition between carriers that will lead to lower fares for the customers. Currently, Delta offers five daily nonstop flights to Minneapolis-St. Paul, and United has three daily nonstop flights to Chicago. Minnesota-based Sun Country Airlines will begin charter flights to Nashville, Tenn., in May. However, Duluth will retain a carrier only if there is sustainable demand. Demand is the key to long-term relationship.

 

 

 

Werner had been in discussion with the American Airlines for past three years which is not a long time to clinch a deal. According to him it is the businesses and the residents of this region that have the real voice in the conversation with any airline. American Airlines took noticve of recent passenger growth, especially in 2018.
