Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA) recently announced that American Airlines will provide nonstop flights to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport starting in February. Two weeks ago, low-cost carrier Breeze Airways said it would provide nonstop flights to the Phoenix airport.
The new American Airlines flights start Feb. 3 and will be offered daily on an Embraer 175 aircraft. With the addition of this route, American Airlines offers eight nonstop flights at XNA.
“American is excited to connect Northwest Arkansas with Phoenix starting this winter, providing local customers with additional access to American’s global network,” said Philippe Puech, director of short-haul network planning for American Airlines. “This new route complements our existing service from XNA to Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Washington D.C.”
