American Airlines is adding a new early morning flight in and out of San Angelo’s Mathis Field airport, starting next month.
That will bring the total to six arrivals and departures between Dallas and San Angelo daily.
The new flight, departing at 6:45 in the morning, will begin June seventh and it will be on a bigger jet.
The ERJ175 is American’s newest airplane and carries 76 passengers.
The Mathis Field airport manager says the new flight will also be a good test for whether american needs to add any more flights in and out of San Angelo, because current passengers loads are high.
