American Adds Three New Direct Flights From Philly

One route west, two to the south.

The Delco Times reports on three new routes operating out of the Philadelphia International Airport this weekend:

American Airlines and US Airways announced the addition of service to Yeager Airport in Charleston, W.Va., Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Ky., and Memphis International Airport in Memphis, Tenn., starting June 5. These destinations join the 127 that American and US Airways already serve from Philadelphia, which includes service to 25 countries.

“We’re thrilled to announce new non-stop service from our Philadelphia hub to three key cities in Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia, highlighting America’s ongoing commitment to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection,” said Joe Taney, vice president, Philadelphia operations.

More direct flights: Always a good thing.
