American Airlines to Launch Airlift into Key West from Texas in June 2018

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — American Airlines is scheduled to begin new nonstop service between Key West International Airport and Dallas–Fort Worth International Airport June 9, 2018.

The new commercial service is to offer once-weekly seasonal flights from Saturday, June 9, to Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, on 76-passenger E175 regional jets, said Donald DeGraw, director of airports for the Florida Keys & Key West.

“With new jet service to Dallas, our visitors now have more than 100 options for one-stop connections to the United States and abroad,” DeGraw said. “The new service opens up the U.S. West Coast market for Key West.”

American’s new service also has the potential for expanded frequency of flights into Key West, DeGraw added.

DeGraw worked with the Key West Chamber of Commerce and Voltaire Aviation to secure the new air capacity.
