American Airlines to add flights at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood

American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) will expand its presence at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood when it adds new service between FLL and Los Angeles (LAX) as well as increase its service to Chicago O’Hare and Dallas/Fort Worth. Daily departures from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood will increase by 30 percent to 17 flights next winter.

On November 17, American will add new nonstop service to Los Angeles as well as one additional flight to Chicago (O’Hare). On February 9, American will add another flight to Chicago as well as an additional nonstop to Dallas/Fort Worth. American will operate Boeing 737-800 aircraft on all of these routes.

The new Los Angeles nonstop complements the 10 new cities American added from its West Coast cornerstone last spring when the airline increased its departures from LAX by 28 percent.
