American Eagle said it will begin service between Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and two new Mexican destinations this summer.
The regional carrier, owned by AMR Corp., said service between DFW and Hermosillo and Zacatecas will start on June 12, pending government approval. American Eagle will operate one flight a day to Hermosillo, which is home to a large Ford stamping and assembly facility, and three-times a week service to Zacatecas, which has over a dozen mining districts for silver, zinc and other metals.
Both flights will use a 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 aircraft, the carrier said.
American Airlines also announced on Thursday that it will initiate daily service between Miami and San Diego on June 12. The flight will be operated with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 150 seats.
