American Airlines to expand Los Angeles hub by offering new nonstop flights To Atlanta

New Los Angeles service will provide Atlanta customers with more access to American's global network.

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Customers in Atlanta and Los Angeles will soon have new travel options between their cities when American Airlines launches nonstop service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) on March 5, 2015. Customers may begin booking travel on these flights on Sunday, Oct. 12.

These new routes will further expand American’s network from its Los Angeles hub, an important gateway for both domestic and international travel. It will also provide Atlanta customers with easy access to this key business and leisure destination, as well as one-stop service to hundreds of global destinations on American, US Airways and their oneworld partners.

“American is expanding our Los Angeles hub with Atlanta service to give customers more travel options between these two key markets and Atlanta customers convenient access to Southern California,” said Chuck Schubert, vice president – Network and Schedule Planning. “With nearly 200 daily departures out of Los Angeles and nearly 50 out of Atlanta, we’re giving customers more opportunities to explore the world for business or pleasure on our growing global network.”

The new flights will be served with Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

With this new Atlanta service, American will serve 55 domestic and international destinations from its LAX hub. The new route complements American’s new domestic and international service at LAX , which includes flights to Sao Paulo (GRU), Edmonton, Alberta (YEG), Vancouver, British Columbia (YVR), San Antonio (SAT) and Tampa (TPA) service that will begin next month, as well as American’s existing Asia service out of LAX to Tokyo Narita (NRT) and Shanghai (PVG). With the new Los Angeles service, Atlanta customers will have direct access to eight of American’s hubs – Charlotte, Chicago O’Hare, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York LaGuardia, Philadelphia and Phoenix.
