COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia airport is gaining flights to two more cities.
American Airlines announced on Thursday that it will offer service from Columbus to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, and Charlotte, North Carolina, beginning Aug. 17.
Currently, the airport’s only commercial service is a brief Delta Air Lines hop to Atlanta. According to the Ledger-Enquirer, American served Columbus from 1989 until 1995 and from 2010 to 2013.
Both times, the airline offered regional jet service to Dallas/Fort Worth. Columbus Airport Commission Board Chair Don Cook says the flights will aid business and government travelers.
American will start selling tickets for the flights on Monday.
