Midstate to Get Daily Flights to Dallas Hub

American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will offer the flights on 70-seat Canadair regional jets


Daily nonstop flights from Harrisburg International Airport to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will begin Sept. 7.

American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will offer the flights on 70-seat Canadair regional jets.

Passengers flying out of HIA will be able to make connecting flights to more than 120 destinations served by Dallas/Fort Worth, including cities throughout the Southwest, Mexico, the Caribbean and South America, said Dave Jackson, a spokesman for American Eagle.

American Eagle has had good success with its four flights a day from Harrisburg to Chicago, Jackson said.

"It's a growing market," he said. "We see a lot of opportunity for traffic on it."

This is the first time an airline that uses HIA has provided service to Texas, HIA spokesman Scott Miller said.

"Dallas/Fort Worth is the largest hub in the United States for American Airlines," Miller said. "We've been working on this for a year and a half."

An American Eagle plane will leave Harrisburg at 7:05 a.m. daily and arrive in Dallas/Fort Worth at 9:25 a.m.

A daily return flight will leave Dallas/Fort Worth at 4:15 p.m. and arrive in Harrisburg at 8:15 p.m. All times are local.

Miller said HIA will roll out a marketing campaign throughout July and August to promote the service to Dallas/Fort Worth.
