BOSTON - Back in December, we wrote about the immense amount of changes coming to Logan Airport in 2020. A number of new flights were planned for the airport across airlines as a part of a revitalization effort that has become a major project for the city. Included among these new planned flight routes was the announcement that American Airlines would institute a new travel path between Boston and the city of Austin, Texas.
As it turns out, this was not the only plan that American Airlines had in mind for their 2020 tenure at Logan Airport. They are still attempting to capitalize on the effort to become a major factor in the airline industry. The competition is heating up!
It was announced earlier this week that American Airlines would be adding three new flights to their Logan Airport rotation that would provide Boston travelers with nonstop access to three cities, two of which are in North Carolina and one is in Indiana. Nonstop service to the cities of Morrisville and Wilmington in North Carolina, as well as Indianapolis in Indiana will begin this May at Logan Airport.
The flights to Morrisville will go into Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The flights to Wilmington will go into Wilmington International Airport. The flights to Indianapolis will go into Indianapolis International Airport. Tickets for each begin their sale Monday.
The flights to North Carolina will be conducted at a clip of five daily, with weekend flights provided to Wilmington. The flight route to Indianapolis will be conducted twice a day. In a press release, managing director Jim Carter said, "With the addition of these new flights, customers will have more options than ever to get to multiple cities within the Tar Heel State from Boston." It is certainly a sensible decision, as Logan Airport looks to continue its efforts to become one of the top airports across the nation.
As someone who has a number of friends in North Carolina and Indiana, I certainly think this decision will be a beneficial one! Who would ever say no to more flights, after all?
