Later this year, American Airlines will begin flying direct to Provo, Utah, from Dallas-Fort Worth.

According to the Fort Worth-based airline, flights from DFW Airport to Provo Airport will run twice daily beginning October 7, and tickets will be available starting April 22, reported WFAA.

“We are thrilled to offer service to Provo for the first time starting this fall. This new year-round service will offer convenient connections to destinations across the United States and the world on our comprehensive global network, giving local residents more ways to visit the places they want to visit most,” said Joe Sottile, American Airlines’ director of Domestic Network Planning, in a statement, per Simple Flying.

Provo’s mayor welcomed the news.

“We had a forward-looking vision when we built the Provo Airport. The monumental announcement of the arrival of American Airlines proves we were on their radar as much as our airport tower will soon be on theirs,” Mayor Michelle Kaufusi said in a statement, reported Simple Flying.

With the addition of Provo, American Airlines will now operate three direct flights from North Texas to Utah. The airline already flies to Salt Lake City and St. George, the latter of which had its seasonal service relaunched earlier in April, reported NBC 5 DFW.

News of the latest American Airlines route to Utah comes a month after Breeze Airways announced it will begin flying a DFW to Provo route this year, reported The Dallas Morning News. Starting June 7, the low-cost carrier plans to include a twice-weekly service between the two cities. Breeze, which started operations in May 2021, leverages smaller airports for its service.

The American Airlines Provo route will be serviced using a Bombardier CRJ-700 aircraft, with space for 65 passengers.
