On Monday (July 8, 2024), American Airlines announced that they have submitted an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation to start new daily service between Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, D.C. and San Antonio (SAT) in Texas.  As part of the 2024 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill signed into law in May, five new roundtrip flights serving DCA have been approved.  American’s proposed DCA-SAT route will complement over 25 daily departures between San Antonio and seven U.S. cities.  If the route is approved, inbound customers to DCA will enjoy convenient one-stop connectivity to numerous destinations in the carrier’s network in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Canada.

In Monday’s announcement, American Airlines’ SVP – Network and Schedule Planning, Brian Znotins, said,

“American is proud to submit an application to provide the only nonstop service between San Antonio and Washington, D.C.  This new service will expand American’s industry-leading domestic network connecting customers to the places they want to visit most.”

Also commenting on the proposed new service, San Antonio Airport System’s Director of Airports, Jesus Saenz, said,

“Adding a nonstop route to Reagan National Airport is part of our efforts to expand air operations for the San Antonio region.  We’re grateful to American Airlines for their shared vision to improve connectivity and for helping us elevate our service options with a route that will be especially beneficial to our business and military communities.  This is yet another step in our commitment to modernize our airport and improve the traveler experience.”
