New American Airlines Route to Dallas Starts Today

Today is the day that American Airlines takes its inaugural flight from Charleston to Dallas/Fort Worth. Yeager Airport will hold a special reception at the airport today at 4pm to welcome the new jet service. A news release from the airport says flights will depart from Dallas at 1:05 p.m. and arrive in Charleston at 4:30 p.m. Departures from Charleston will leave at 5 p.m. and arrive in Dallas at 6:30 p.m. It's a two and a half hour flight, but Dallas is Central time so passengers lose an hour.
