American adds service out of LAX this summer

American Airlines announced it will add service to seven new destinations this summer out of Los Angeles Airport.

The new service includes:

-Oregon cities, Eugene and Redmond, starting on June 12 and operated by SkyWest Airlines

-Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Hartford and Columbus, Ohio starting on August 27

-Bentonville, Arkanasas, starting on August 27 and operated by American Eagle Airlines.

American added that it wants to offer daily round trip service from Los Angeles to Sao Paulo, Brazil on November 21 if the Department of Transportation approves the service. The carrier filed an application with the DOT for that route in February.

"Our Los Angeles hub plays a vital role in our domestic and international network strategy," said American's chief commercial officer Virasb Vahidi.

The carrier also plans to use its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on its existing route between Los Angeles and London Heathrow airport in June.
