FORT WORTH, Texas (March 6, 2014) – American Airlines and US Airways this week announced the addition of new regional service in June from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to Blue Grass Airport (LEX) in Lexington, Ky., adding this new route to the airline’s network.
Customers may book the new flights at aa.com and usairways.com and other distribution channels starting March 8 for travel beginning June 5. Following the launch of the new service, American Airlines and US Airways will serve 127 destinations in 25 countries from Philadelphia.
“We’re thrilled to announce new non-stop service from our Philadelphia hub to this key city in Kentucky, highlighting American’s ongoing commitment to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection,” said Joe Taney, vice president, Philadelphia Operation. “Today’s news gives our customers even more choices and adds to more than 120 non-stop destinations we currently serve from our international gateway at PHL.”
“To say that we are pleased about this new service would be an understatement,” said Eric Frankl, executive director, Blue Grass Airport. “We have been working to obtain non-stop service to Philadelphia for several years and we know our business community will really benefit from the convenience. We greatly appreciate our partnership with American Airlines and thank them for providing our community with a new hub-destination that provides our customers one-stop connecting service to numerous domestic and international destinations.”
