American Eagle Airlines is launching nonstop, twice-daily jet service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Boise Airport (BOI) in Boise, Idaho, beginning April 5.
Eagle will operate the service with 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 jets.
“American Eagle is delighted to introduce service from Los Angeles – one of American’s key cornerstone markets – to Boise,” says Gary Foss, vice president – planning and marketing for American’s regional network. “With two daily round-trip flights, customers in western Idaho will now have convenient nonstop access to the West Coast and connections throughout American’s global network.”
“Adding these flights is a great sign of better days ahead for Idaho. American Airlines is showing confidence that the Boise market and Idaho’s economy will generate the kind of revenue it needs to operate this route profitably,” says Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter. “It also is an important step toward our goal of establishing a critical mass of business for Idaho’s emerging aircraft industry, and we get the added benefit of a solid corporate citizen in American Airlines that understands the importance of relationships with business-friendly communities like ours.”
American Eagle’s schedule for flights between Los Angeles and Boise (all times local) will see flight AA3076 leave LAX at 7:00 a.m. and arrive at BOI at 10:00 a.m. Flight AA3083 will depart LAX at noon and will land at BOI at 2:55 p.m.
In the other direction, flight AA3077 is timed to leave BOI at 10:25 a.m. and to reach LAX at 11:40 a.m. local time. Flight AA3085 will depart the gate at BOI at 3:25 p.m. and get into LAX a 4:40 p.m.
Eagle’s sister carrier American Airlines recently announced a significant increase in service from Los Angeles, which the two airlines say is the largest U.S. city in terms of domestic traffic and a premier gateway to the Asia Pacific region. With the addition of nine new domestic markets and American’s previously announced service to Shanghai, American and American Eagle will offer customers 153 daily departures from Los Angeles International Airport.
As part of this growth at LAX, American Eagle plans to expand its new terminal facility to add four additional gates, an investment of $20 million.
