Daytona Beach, FL - American Airlines is adding weekly nonstop flights to Washington D.C. from Daytona Beach International Airport during the month of March. DBIA Director of Air Service/Marketing/Customer Experience Joanne Magley said, “We are thrilled that American Airlines is adding this new non-stop flight during one of our peak travel times.”
The flights are scheduled for every Saturday in March, arriving at DBIA at 10:54 a.m. and arriving at DCA at approximately 1:19 p.m. Tickets are already available and route planners say "if advanced bookings are solid, there will be an opportunity to extend flights into April."
Magley said, “The Washington, D.C. area consistently ranks as one of the top destinations to and from the Daytona Beach area. It is a market we continuously talk about with the airline route planners, and the planners with American Airlines recognize the demand for service.”
Cyrus Callum, the Director of Aviation and Economic Resources for Volusia County Government, said while the new Washington D.C. flights will begin as seasonal, it could open the gates for additional or year-round service.
“American Airlines has already indicated there’s an opportunity for extending the DCA flights and a good way to ensure an extension is for the community to use the service,” said Callum.
