Starting December 18, American Airlines will fly nonstop to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The service will operate daily but on a seasonal basis through May 6. American will operate a Bombardier CRJ-900 jet on the route, with 76 seats including 12 first-class seats. American serves 91 destinations from Phoenix, including popular destinations in Hawaii, Mexico and Central America.
Passengers will now have a choice of three carriers serving Phoenix: Southwest, Allegiant (to Phoenix-Mesa) and American. The additional capacity and the competition will keep fares affordable. Flights can be booked beginning July 1.
