American Eagle Airlines adds additional Flights to Miami out of JAX

JACKSONVILLE, December 10, 2010 – The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) today announced that American Eagle Airlines has increased nonstop service between Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and Miami International Airport (MIA), with the addition of two new flights effective April 5, 2011. American Eagle Airlines is the regional affiliate of American Airlines.

The additional flights will bring American Eagle’s daily departures from JAX to Miami to seven. American Eagle will operate its seven daily flights with a mix of 50-seat Embraer EMB-145 jets and 64-seat Super ATR aircraft.

  “This is great news for our region’s business and leisure air travelers,” said Michael Stewart, JAA’s Director of External Affairs. “Locally, there is a huge demand for service to Miami since it is a prime location for business and tourism. We’re thrilled American Eagle has added these flights to our schedule, which gives our customers even more travel choices to an international hub.”

JAA announced last month Delta Airlines will begin daily nonstop service between JAX and MIA beginning in March, 2011. Delta plans to operate four departures and arrivals each day between the two Florida cities.

With this latest addition, there will be 11 daily departures from Jacksonville to Miami.
