American adds capacity into Montana and Alaska for summer 2020

American Airlines has added more capacity to and from the state of Montana with four new summer seasonal flights in 2020 from Philadelphia (PHL), New York City (LGA) and Los Angeles (LAX).

The airline will operate daily from LAX to Bozeman (BZN) from June to September utilising an Embraer E175. It will also fly once a week to BZN from PHL and LGA using Boeing 737-800s between the same months.

American will also fly once a week from LGA to Glacier National Park Airport in Kalispell (FCA). It is also switching to a larger aircraft to FCA on the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Chicago (ORD) flights – from an Embraer E175 with 76 seats to a Boeing 737-800 with 160 seats.

The airline will also introduce three new routes to Alaska, including daily services from both DFW and ORD to Fairbanks, a new destination for the carrier.

American is providing two new ways to get to Alaska’s second-largest city, Fairbanks, through DFW on an Airbus A321 and ORD on a 737-800. Both are daily services and run from May to October next year. It will also introduce a new daily service between ORD and Anchorage, Alaska (ANC), operating between the same months.
