American Airlines is adding flights at Boston Logan International airport, and challenging Jetblue and Delta Air Lines for supremacy, Forbes reports.
American has announced six new flights at Logan in the past year, including three new routes in January – Indianapolis, Raleigh-Durham and Wilmington.
The flights will utilise 76-seater Embraer E175 regional jets, with the new service including up to five daily departures to Raleigh-Durham.
The airline now serves 26 destinations from Boston, including London Heathrow (from March 29), and six Caribbean countries.
Jetblue has 150 peak daily departures from Boston, followed by Delta with 106 and American with 100. Jetblue has led Boston in market share since 2011, a feat accomplished without offering any transatlantic flights.
Last year, Delta announced plan to have 200 daily departures from Logan by 2021, and has also partnered with LATAM on South American flights – an alliance unsuccessfully sought by American.
American previously announced Boston-London service beginning in March, and twice daily Boston-Austin service, which will launch in April.
