New American Eagle Service, DFW-SLP

Wed Nov 03, 2004 8:47 am

American Eagle announced today that beginning Jan. 5, the carrier will add daily service between Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport and San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The carrier will operate one flight each day with its popular, state-of-the-art 44-seat ERJ-140 regional jets.

"Consistent with the American Airlines expansion into international markets, American Eagle is expanding its presence in Mexico," said Peter Bowler, President - American Eagle. "New flights to San Luis Potosi will further expand American's network, giving our customers added flexibility and convenience when making their travel plans. In addition, the flights are conveniently timed to provide San Luis Potosi travelers early morning flights to American's Dallas/Fort Worth hub, with connecting options to hundreds of U.S. and international destinations."

San Luis Potosi is located northwest of Mexico City in central Mexico's high-plains region. It is the largest and most industrial of the old Silver Mining Cities, with more than a half million residents. In addition, San Luis Potosi is home to Universidad Autonoma de San Luis Potosi, one of Mexico's main universities.

The new flights, now available for sale, will depart Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) at 6:16 p.m., arriving in San Luis Potosi (SLP) at 8:38 p.m. The return flight departs San Luis Potosi at 7:05 a.m., and arrives Dallas/Fort Worth at 9:15 a.m.

With new service to San Luis Potosi, American Eagle will fly to six cities in Mexico -- Aguascalientes, Leon, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Torreon. American Airlines has been serving Mexico for more than 60 years, since it began flying in 1942 from Dallas/Fort Worth to Monterrey with continuing service to Mexico City. Combined, American and American Eagle offer more than 275 flights a week to the United States from 12 cities in Mexico -- Acapulco, Aguascalientes, Cancun, Cozumel, Guadalajara, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Leon, Los Cabos, Mexico City, Monterrey, Puerto Vallarta and Torreon.
