American Airlines to Offer Nonstop Flights KCI to New York – LaGuardia Starting April 5

American Airlines announced it will add twice-daily service between Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and New York – LaGuardia (LGA) starting April 5, 2016. The service will be operated on American Eagle Embraer 170 aircraft, offering First class and Economy class service to travelers. Early morning and early afternoon departures make getting to New York City convenient for business and leisure travelers, alike. Returning is equally convenient with late morning and evening departures from LaGuardia. “With over 500 passengers flying every day, New York City is the fourth most popular route from Kansas City,” said Kansas City Director of Aviation Mark VanLoh. “We’re pleased that American Airlines has elected to provide another nonstop option for travelers between the Big Apple and the City of Fountains.”

Earlier in 2015 American began new nonstop service to Miami International Airport (MIA) using Airbus A319 equipment. The Miami flights are perfectly timed for local passengers and offer convenient connections to destinations beyond Miami, American's gateway to Latin America. Additionally, American will launch new nonstop service between Kansas City and Cancun starting in March 2016. The Cancun flights will operate on Saturdays with Boeing 737-800 equipment.
