American Airlines/US Airways and United Airlines are adding new daily flights at Memphis International Airport this month.
United is adding a daily flight to Denver and American Airlines/US Airways will add an additional daily flight to Chicago and Dallas.
“We are excited that more options are available to our passengers looking to travel to Chicago, Dallas, and Denver,” said Scott Brockman, president and CEO of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority.
Including the new flights, the peak monthly flight total in Memphis in May is 93, up from 86 in February. The new flights bring 863 more available seats for Memphis passengers. Since Delta Airlines dropped Memphis as a hub, every other airline at Memphis International has increased its number of flight options and the Airport Authority said more additions will take place in June.
“We’ve increased our available seats by 12 percent since February, and we will continue our relentless pursuit of frequent and affordable air service,” said Brockman.
