American Airlines to offer direct flight between Amarillo and Phoenix


On Friday, Dec. 1, officials from Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport announced that American Airlines will begin offering a direct, non-stop jet service between Amarillo and Phoenix, Arizona in the spring of 2018.

“This is a monumental time for our Airport and we are thrilled to announce the daily, non-stop jet service between Amarillo and Phoenix,” says Mayor Pro Tem Eddy Sauer. “We, as a community, are moving in the right direction and we should all recognize this as a symbol of steady and strategic growth.”

On Thursday, June 30, 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport received $750,000 to enhance local air service through the Small Community Air Service Development Program. The program assists in addressing the economic challenges of maintaining local air service.

“We are pleased to offer new options for our customers by flying directly to Phoenix and beyond,” says Jason Reisinger, American Airline’s Managing Director of Global Network Planning. “This new service complements our existing DFW service.”.
