American Airlines will soon offer 11 different nonstop flights out of CVG.

As COVID restrictions lift across the country and more and more people are getting vaccinated, the idea of flying somewhere for a vacation is creeping back onto the public's radar.

And as interest in air travel reignites, American Airlines has announced two nonstop services out of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) — one is new and one is a returning flight.

Starting Sept. 8, American Airlines will be offering a twice-daily flight to Austin, Texas. Tickets go on sale Monday, June 14, for the aircraft, which has 12 first-class and 64 economy seats.

Flights will depart CVG at 7:30 a.m. and 4:35 p.m. for Austin's AUS airport.

American Airlines is also reinstating its flight to Phoenix, Arizona, in August and announced in April that it would be launching a flight from CVG to Boston three times daily starting Nov. 2.

“Austin is a strong addition to American’s growing network at CVG, serving both leisure and business travelers,” says Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG, in a release. “American Airlines has been an excellent partner since they began service here 74 years ago, and we welcome this service for local travelers.”

This announcement marks the 11th destination to be served by American Airlines out of CVG. Other flights, in addition to the aforementioned Phoenix and Boston flights, include nonstop service to Charlotte, North Carolina; Chicago; Dallas; Miami; New York (both JFK and LGA); Philadelphia; and Washington, D.C.

“Whether they’re taking advantage of the recently announced new flights to Austin or Boston, restarted service to Phoenix, or any of our existing routes from CVG, we look forward to welcoming more customers back to travel with American and further connecting them with our global network,” says Brian Znotins, American Airlines vice president of network planning.
