American Eagle is to launch a new round-trip
service between Los Angeles LAX and Santa Fe and add a second
daily, round-trip flight between the Santa Fe Municipal Airport
and Dallas-Fort Worth on 19 November 2009.
The airline's first Dallas to Santa Fe
service began 11 June 2009 and has been successful enough to
prompt the company to add a second connection.
The Santa Fe to Los Angeles flight is expected
to do well serving visitors and professionals connected to New
Mexico's thriving film industry.
American Eagle's non-stop service between Dallas and Santa Fe
uses the 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 jet. The $20 million aircraft
cruises at 500+ mph and 40,000 feet. The same aircraft will
be used for the new Santa Fe/LAX service.
The Santa Fe
Municipal Airport, which was recently upgraded to handle regional jets
like the Embraer, is located on the southwestern edge
of the city, about a 20-minute shuttle ride into downtown.
