KEY WEST, Florida Keys -- American Airlines announced Friday that beginning Feb. 15, the airline is to launch new seasonal weekly service on Saturdays nonstop between Key West International Airport (EYW) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) on 76-passenger Embraer E175 regional jets.
The service, American’s first into the Florida Keys from Boston, Massachusetts, will run through May 2, 2020. Tickets can be purchased beginning Oct. 28. American will be the only carrier operating between EYW and BOS.
American’s E175 aircraft have seating for 64 main cabin and 12 first-class passengers.
“Boston is a top draw for visitors from the U.S. Northeast, which has traditionally been one of our core winter feeder markets,” said Stacey Mitchell, director of the Florida Keys & Key West’s destination marketing office. “American’s expansion into Key West is to help drive new visitation throughout the Keys from across New England.”
American currently flies into Key West from Dallas–Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) with daily nonstop flights, increasing connectivity into the Keys from the Midwest and West Coast. Beginning in December DFW flights will be operated on an Airbus A319, with 128 seats to the airline’s largest hub through April.
In addition, American flies into Key West from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) with Saturday service on E175 aircraft, which is increasing to daily service in January. And the airline operates year-round from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), on an E175 aircraft.
American continues to grow in Key West and is launching new Saturday service from New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) on Dec. 21. The airline also currently has more than 1,500 flights per year from its Latin American gateway, Miami International Airport (MIA).
