American Eagle Airlines has received government approval to begin daily nonstop jet service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to two new destinations in Mexico.
Beginning February 10, American Eagle will introduce daily flights to General Heriberto Jara International Airport (VER) in Veracruz, using 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jet aircraft; and Queretaro International Airport (QRO) in Queretaro, using 37-seat Embraer ERJ-135 jets.
“American Eagle is pleased to offer our customers two new destinations in Mexico,” says Gary Foss, vice president – planning and Mmrketing for the AA Regional Network. “These daily nonstop flights will link customers from throughout Central Mexico and the Gulf Coast region with American’s largest hub, offering convenient connections throughout American’s global network.”
Veracruz is Mexico’s oldest and largest port city, catering to tourist and business travelers alike. Queretaro is a thriving inland community, dominated by manufacturing, commerce and tourism.
With 14 total daily flights to Mexico, Eagle also serves Aguascalientes, Leon (Guanajuato), Chihuahua, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosi and Torreon.
The schedule between Dallas/Fort Worth and Veracruz (all times local) will see flight AA3309 leaving DFW at 6:50 p.m. and arriving at VER at 9:35 p.m. local time. In the other direction, flight AA3300 will, from February 11, depart VER at 7:30 a.m. and reach DFW at 10:15 a.m.
American Eagle’s schedule between Dallas/Fort Worth and Queretaro (all times local) calls for flight AA3293 to depart DFW at 10:30 a.m. and to land at QRO at 1:20 p.m. In the other direction, flight AA3281 is timed to leave QRO at 2:10 p.m. in order to make a 4:35 p.m. arrival at DFW
Together, American Airlines and American Eagle serve 15 destinations throughout Mexico with 50 daily flights. Pending regulatory approvals, American also plans to codeshare with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air later this year, offering service from the West Coast to nine destinations in Mexico.

“We are pleased that our partnership with American Airlines now offers greater domestic and international capacity with connections over Chicago,” says Torrance Richardson, executive director of airports with the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority. “The addition of this flight represents a 24 per cent increase in capacity for FWA passengers on American Airlines over the Chicago hub.”
