Missoula welcomes new American Airlines service to DFW, United to LA

June 7, 2018View for printing

The skies over Missoula grew a little more crowded on Thursday as American Airlines launched nonstop service to Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago, followed later in the day by United Airlines service to Los Angeles.

But it was the arrival of American shortly before noon that drew much of the fanfare, as airport officials greeted the inaugural flight with a water-canon salute and offered debarking passengers a swag bag and slice of cake.

“This is fabulous coming nonstop from Dallas to Missoula,” said passenger Thomas Taylor. “For years, I’ve been having to come through all these second stops. This makes Missoula so much closer. It makes it easier to come here much more often. It’s going to put Missoula on the map.”

There's still a chance to help us make air travel more affordable for everyone! To add your company's name to the list of Take Flight Missoula community partners and investors, please contact the Missoula Economic Partnership today.
