Starting this week on March 4th American Airlines will begin new nonstop service between Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and the Eugene Airport. The daily flights will initially feature two-class service on an Embraer 175 jet aircraft with mainline service starting June 6th on an Airbus A319 aircraft. The scheduled flight times (all times local) are as follows (flight times are subject to change):
- EUG to DFW: 11:54 a.m. – 5:47 p.m.
- DFW to EUG: 12:50 p.m. – 3:13 p.m.
“The addition of service to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport provides more nonstop travel options for the people in our region,” said Acting Eugene Airport Director Cathryn Stephens, A.A.E. “We have a strong partnership with American Airlines and are excited for new flights between EUG and DFW.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has created one of the most challenging periods of time in history for the aviation industry. This 2020/2021 holiday season saw EUG passenger levels at approximately 54% of 2019 levels, which was the ninth-consecutive record year with over 1.2 million passengers. Despite the challenges, this moment represents an opportunity for the industry to take advantage of a unique strategic point in time and the addition of American Airlines EUG-DFW nonstop service is an example of that.
“As customers in Eugene look forward to taking to the skies this year, we want to provide more choices by adding service to our largest hub, Dallas-Fort Worth,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. “We are excited to offer this new daily flight which will provide optimal connections, while also complementing existing service from Phoenix.”
