American Airlines increases service from Roanoke to New York
American Airlines will add a second nonstop daily departure from Roanoke‐Blacksburg Regional airport to New York’s La Guardia Airport starting Jan. 9.
The additional flight will increase service to twice daily Monday – Friday and once daily on Saturday and Sunday.
“This is an important development for area businesses as New York is the nation’s financial center,” Timothy Bradshaw, executive director of the Roanoke Regional Airport Commission, said in a statement. “The region has been utilizing the existing service on American for the last two years and as it has become more popular with travelers. The airline has added this additional flight to accommodate the increased demand.”
American has scheduled the new arrival into Roanoke at 9:43 a.m., which will then depart for La Guardia at 10:30 a.m. The 2:15 p.m. flight to LaGuardia also will continue daily.
The Roanoke‐Blacksburg Regional Airport serves more than 600,000 passengers a year with four airlines with nonstop service to eight hub cities.
