Bullhead City welcomed its first scheduled service in nearly 20 years on 16 February, a daily CRJ 700-operated flight from Phoenix flown by American Airlines. To celebrate, the airport baked not just one, but two cakes! Maybe a cake for each decade it has not been served?
American Airlines was also welcomed to Santa Rosa on 16 February, the airport’s third airline after Alaska Airlines and Allegiant Air. American will offer a daily flight between Phoenix and Santa Rosa on its CRJ 700s.
- American Airlines introduced two new US airports to its network on 16 February, beginning connections from its Phoenix (PHX) hub to Bullhead City (IFP) in Arizona and Santa Rosa (STS) in California. By launching flights to Bullhead City, American becomes the first carrier in nearly 20 years to offer a scheduled service to the airport. Santa Rosa Airport is already served by Alaska Airlines and Allegiant Air. Flights on the 301-kilometre link to Bullhead City, and the 1,122-kilometre connection to Santa Rosa, will be flown daily on American’s CRJ 700s, with neither route facing direct competition.
