Hoosiers now have another flight option when planning their trip to the historic city of Boston. American Airlines has announced a new daily, nonstop flight from the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) to Boston set to begin this May.
The new flight will depart from Indianapolis twice daily Sunday-Friday and once on Saturdays. Daily flights will begin on Thursday, May 7 and tickets are available to purchase this weekend.
“Giving Hoosier travelers more options to get there from here is our goal,’ said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “More nonstop flight options enable travelers to get to their destinations easily and quickly – and that’s part of the value the Indy airport strives to deliver. The new American Airlines flight aligns perfectly with that mission.”
The new flight to Boston will put the number of nonstop destinations American Airlines serves out of Indianapolis at 11 connecting Hoosiers to major business and leisure destinations, including Washington D.C., New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Miami and Charlotte. American Airlines averages 40 flight departures per day—the most amongst Indy airport airlines—and carried on average 22 percent of the 2019 monthly passenger traffic.
With this announcement, Hoosiers can reach Boston via American and Delta Air Lines’ daily nonstop flights. Southwest Airlines also will offer Hoosiers a once-weekly flight on Saturdays beginning in June.
“We want to be the airline of choice to customers in the heartland, and these new flights fit that plan perfectly,” said Vasu Raja, American’s senior vice president of network strategy. “With a convenient schedule, we look forward to welcoming our Indianapolis customers to Boston when the new service launches in May.”
