Louisville Intl Airport Adds Two New Non-Stop Flights to East Coast
Friday September 7, 2007
Two new daily nonstop flights have been added to Louisville International Airport's menu of jet service. Flights between Louisville, KY, and Boston, MA, and between Louisville, KY, and New York City's LaGuardia Airport are in full swing.
The Louisville-Boston service, operated by Delta Connection carrier Comair, is the first scheduled nonstop route offered between Louisville and Boston in the sixty-year history of the airport.
“A direct flight between Louisville and Boston has, for years, been the most requested service that we lacked at Louisville International,” Mayor Jerry Abramson said. “Now, we can offer it. It’s a big deal for frequent travelers, a big deal for the business community — and a win for all customers who use our great airport.”
American Eagle, a regional affiliate of American Airlines, also launched new nonstop jet service from Louisville to New York’s LaGuardia Airport. Offering two daily flights, American Eagle has re-established a link from Louisville to New York that was last served by the airline more than 30 years ago.
“With the addition of these nonstop flights, Louisville International now provides nonstop service to 29 destinations—more destinations than at anytime in the airport’s history,” said Skip Miller, Executive Director for Louisville International Airport.
Since January 2007, the airport has added 18 new flights, two new airlines and four new destinations. Louisville International Airport now offers 110 daily departures to 29 destinations and convenient connections to hundreds of cities worldwide.
