On Thursday, June 7, the South Bend International Airport (SBN) celebrated the arrival of American Airlines’ nonstop flights to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).
“The take-off of these flights to two of American Airlines’ largest hubs is a result of the community’s support and choice to fly local,” said SBN’s Executive Director Mike Daigle. “These new flights offer competitive options for both business and leisure travelers from the South Bend region.”
The flights will be operated by American Eagle using CRJ-700 regional jet aircraft with dual-class cabins and 65 seats. Flights will depart daily from SBN to DFW at 6:48 a.m. and 1:55 p.m. They will return to SBN daily from DFW at 1:23 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Flights to CLT will leave SBN daily at 8:05 a.m. and 5:14 p.m. returning to South Bend each day at 11:30 a.m. and 7:55 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at www.aa.com.
