American Airlines is expanding service at Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), with an additional flight, a larger plane for some flights, and resuming seasonal, non-stop service to New York.
Beginning in January 2020, American will start to transition from PSA Airlines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Airlines, to the mainline airbus 319 for one of its daily flights from Daytona Beach to Charlotte, NC. Also starting in January, American will increase the number of daily flights to six.
“With American adding the airbus 319, that’s a very good indicator for the future here at DAB,” said Airport Director Rick Karl. “This mainline carrier opens up the possibility for more destinations in the future, outside of where the regional PSA jet currently flies.”
Beginning Jan. 11, American Airlines will continue non-stop service between DAB and LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in New York. This comes after the success of the seasonal, summer service that began May 4, 2019.
“We’re thrilled that American will continue to provide service to the New York market and look forward to other possible growth opportunities in the future. The community can take credit for American’s expansion at our airport because they are the ones filling the seats which creates the need to add bigger aircraft and shows airlines the demand for increased service.”
