American Eagle Airlines is increasing the frequency of its nonstop service between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) in Jacksonville, Florida from five to seven flights daily on April 5.

Eagle, which is the regional-airline sister carrier of American Airlines, will operate the seven daily flights with a mix of 50-seat Embraer EMB-145 jets and 64-seat ATR 72-200 turboprops.

“We are excited to launch this additional service to Jacksonville – the largest city in the state, with strong ties to South Florida,” says Peter Dolara, American’s senior vice president based in Miami. “With seven nonstop flights to and from Miami every day, our customers throughout Northeast Florida will have even more convenient connections to destinations throughout the U.S., the Caribbean, Latin America and Europe.”

American Eagle operates 64-seat ATR 72-200 and ATR 72-500 turboprops through its Executive Airlines unit. The ATR 72-200s operate Florida and Caribbean routes from Miami and San Juan in Puerto Rico. The ATR 72-500s operate routes of under 500 miles from American Airlines' hub at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
