American Airlines Expands at Tri-Cities Airport

“Phoenix, with its easy connectivity to Latin America and the entire American Airlines network, has quickly proven popular for the Tri-Cities region,” said Buck Taft, Director of Tri-Cities Airport. “I have no doubt that this second daily flight will be a success, and look forward to American Airlines’ continued growth at our airport.”

The announcement of the additional flight adds to PSC’s increased usage by both passengers and airlines. Last year was the airport’s busiest year on record, with roughly 873,000 total passengers, and now three airlines have added flights since January: Avelo Airlines began service to the Sonoma wine country May 1 and Alaska Airlines will fly to Los Angeles (LAX) in October.

The second daily flight to Phoenix will be available beginning September 5. Tickets are on sale now at
