American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will begin daily round-trip jet service on November 15 between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and the city of Puebla in Mexico.
The regional carrier’s new flight will help promote Puebla “as a new destination for the business and leisure traveler”, according to Rafael Moreno Valle, governor of the State of Puebla.
From November 15, American Eagle’s flight AA3205 will depart Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport daily at 6:35 p.m. and land at Puebla’s Hermanos Serdán International Airport (IATA code PBC) at 9:15 p.m. For much of the year, the two airports are in the same time zone.
In the other direction, flight AA3204 will leave PBC at 7:00 a.m. daily and reach DFW at 9:50 a.m. Arrival and departure times at Puebla shift to an hour earlier from March 10, when US daylight savings time ends, through April 6, when Mexican daylight savings time ends.
This year, American Airlines is marking 70 years of service to Mexico. With the addition of service to Puebla, American and American Eagle will serve 18 destinations in Mexico from the United States.
American Airlines offers service to Mexico from all five of its hubs: Chicago O’Hare, Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami, Los Angeles and New York JFK.
Sister regional airline American Eagle operates more than 1,500 daily flights to over 170 cities throughout the United States, Canada, the Bahamas, Mexico and the Caribbean on behalf of American Airlines.
