Competitive options for travel through Alexandria International Airport (AEX) in Central Louisiana have officially been added for passengers and businesses. Beginning in April, American Airlines will expand its daily service by offering a non-stop option to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) in addition to various flight options to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
“We look forward to introducing our second largest hub, CLT, to customers in Alexandria,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Flights to CLT introduce several new connections up and down the east coast as customers begin to resume travel. American has taken every effort to ensure the well-being of customers throughout their journey, while offering more flexibility and choice than ever before.”
According to an announcement on Facebook by England Airpark & Community, passengers can begin booking flights as early as this week. This new service adds to the already competitive economic climate found in Central Louisiana, providing businesses and the community safe and reliable travel opportunities.
“Having robust air service is critical to achieving economic development success in Central Louisiana,” said Sandra McQuain, Executive Director of England Airpark and Alexandria International Airport. “We value our partnership with American Airlines and thank them for their continued investment in our community.”
“We are excited to see new and expanded air service being offered at AEX,” said Scott Gammel, Deputy Director of Aviation for England Park. “This would not have been possible without the community choosing to fly AEX and supporting our local airport.”
