American Eagle Airlines is launching nonstop service from Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island, Nebraska to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, beginning June 9.

The carrier will serve the route with one daily round-trip and one round-trip every day except Saturdays.


American Eagle, which is the regional-airline affiliate of American Airlines, will operate the flights with a mix of 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 and 50-seat ERJ-145 regional jets.

American Eagle is one of very few carriers to operate the 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140, a smaller sibling of the ERJ-145

“We’re delighted to announce new air service to Grand Island,” says Gary Foss, vice president – planning and marketing for American’s regional network. “These two daily flights will provide customers in Hall County and the surrounding communities with nonstop access to our largest hub in Dallas/Fort Worth, with convenient connections throughout American’s global network.”

American Eagle’s schedule for flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Grand Island calls for flight AA2798 to leave Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) at 12:40 p.m. daily and land at Central Nebraska Regional Airport (GRI) at 2:25 p.m. The second flight, flight AA2900 (which will operate every day except Saturdays), is timed to depart DFW at 8:10 p.m. and reach GRI at 9:50 p.m. Both DFW and GRI are in the same North American Central time zone.

In the other direction, beginning June 10, flight AA3267 will leave GRI at 7:00 a.m. and touch down at DFW at 8:55 a.m. The second flight, AA3221 (which starts operating on June 9 and will be flown every day except Saturdays), is scheduled to depart GRI at 2:55 p.m. and get to DFW at 4:50 p.m.
