American Airlines will continue expanding its domestic and international service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
New network expansion will connect customers between Los Angeles and Edmonton, San Antonio, Tampa and Vancouver. This further will strengthen one of its key hubs and provide more access for customers across its growing global network. New service will be available for booking this Saturday, June 21.
“Providing service from Los Angeles to these destinations strengthens our LAX hub which plays a vital role in our domestic and international network strategy,” said Chuck Schubert, vice president – network and schedule planning. “As we continue work to integrate our two great global networks, we are committed to growing our presence in our hubs to offer customers the most convenient access to the most important global business and leisure destinations.”
Service between LAX and Edmonton, San Antonio and Vancouver will be operated as US Airways Express with a two-class Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft. The new route between LAX and Tampa will be operated by American Airlines with a two-class Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
With these new markets, American will serve 53 domestic and international destinations from its LAX hub. Customers have access to even more global destinations through partners British Airways, Iberia, Qantas, Japan Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific and LAN, all of which offer convenient connections from Los Angeles.
American Airlines Group is the holding company for American Airlines and US Airways. Together with wholly owned and third-party regional carriers operating as American Eagle and US Airways Express, the airlines operate an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to 339 destinations in 54 countries from its hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.
