FORT WORTH, TX (August 11, 2008) – American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will launch two daily round-trip flights from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois to Chicago O’Hare International Airport beginning November 2. That same day, the two daily round-trip flights operated by AmericanConnection carrier Trans States Airlines from Springfield to Lambert St. Louis International Airport will end.

“We look forward to serving the local Springfield market with flights to our hub at Chicago O’Hare,” said Peter Bowler, president and CEO of American Eagle. “From O’Hare, Springfield passengers can easily connect to more than 430 daily flights that American Eagle and American Airlines will operate to dozens of domestic and international destinations in November.”

“While we have enjoyed service to St. Louis for many years, Chicago O’Hare will offer many more connecting options throughout the American Airlines network,” said Mark E. Hanna, executive director, Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport. “The direct connection through Chicago will provide more one-stop connections and save travelers time.”

The flights will be flown using 44-seat Embraer Regional Jets. Here is the new flight schedule:
