Bozeman, MT (January 14, 2016). Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) today announced that American Airlines will offer new, non-stop seasonal service to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). These non-stop flights will provide easy passenger access to/from North Texas and convenient connections to the world’s largest network of flights, including more than 200 destinations in 26 countries.
"We're proud to offer this new service to Bozeman, marking American's return to Montana," said Chuck Schubert, American's vice president - Network Planning. "Customers from around the world will now have access to Bozeman from our largest hub."
“This is exciting news for the Bozeman community and the thousands of Montanans who rely on Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport for reliable air travel,” said U.S. Senator Steve Daines. “This new partnership with American Airlines won’t just increase options for Montanans, but will also make it easier for Montanans to access global destinations at lower costs. It will further open Bozeman’s door to economic opportunities and job creation, unlocking markets for Montana small businesses."
“These flights would not be possible without community support from our partners, Big Sky Resort, The Yellowstone Club, Spanish Peaks and Moonlight Basin, the Bozeman Chamber, Bozeman Tourism Business Improvement District and Yellowstone Country Montana,” said Scott Humphrey, Deputy Airport Director.
American's service will be operated by its American Eagle regional partners, using Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft, which offers customers the choice of 9-12 First Class seats, 10-39 Main Cabin Extra seats with more legroom and Wi-Fi on select aircraft.
