American Airlines' fall schedule includes an increase in nonstop service to Key West from its hubs in Charlotte and Dallas-Fort Worth.
The new flights, which started Oct. 8, feature 76-seat regional jets from Charlotte and 128-seat Airbus 319s from Dallas.
The flights from DFW will operate twice daily. From Charlotte, American will offer three daily flights on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with two daily flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Stacey Mitchell, director of the Florida Keys & Key West destination marketing office, said the mid-Atlantic and south-central regions are some of Key West's strongest inbound markets. "American's service into Key West from Dallas-Fort Worth is likely to increase demand from the West Coast, a growing market, and the Midwest, always a strong winter market for us," she said.
