A regional airport in Alabama’s capital will soon begin offering direct flights to the nation’s capital.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports American Airlines service from Montgomery Regional Airport to Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. is set to begin June 7, 2018. One flight will arrive in the morning in Montgomery, and another will depart for Washington in the afternoon.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange says the addition will be invaluable for people who regularly travel between Maxwell Air Force Base and Washington. County Commission Chairman Elton Dean also says the new service will go a long way toward attracting and retaining businesses in the Montgomery area.
Montgomery Regional Airport currently offers nonstop flights to Dallas and Charlotte through American Airlines, and to Atlanta through Delta.
