Customers will enjoy American’s 76-seat Embraer E-175, a modern regional jet that feels like a larger jet, and includes 12 first class seats. The flight is currently planned as a seasonal route running through April and is now available for bookings at aa.com.
“Wisconsin travelers will have access to all the great destinations available through American’s Charlotte hub.” said Abe Weber, Appleton airport director. “Charlotte is American’s gateway to the Southeast, Florida and the Caribbean, so getting to these popular destinations will now be faster and easier for our customers.”
Through the American Clean Commitment, the airline is protecting passengers’ health during the pandemic with multiple layers of protection, including enhanced cleaning of American’s spaces in airports and its airplanes and enforcement of its face coverings policy. And in the coming months, American will be the first U.S. airline to start deploying SurfaceWise2, a breakthrough EPA-approved antiviral protectant. This antimicrobial surface coating will help protect passengers and crew members against transmission via surfaces particularly on high-touch areas such as seats, armrests, tray tables and overhead bin doors.
