American Airlines Adds Direct Route From XNA To Phoenix

NWA Daily

This weekend, American Airlines announced plans to add a daily, nonstop flight from XNA to Phoenix Sky Harbor beginning Feb 3, 2023.

  • Fight or flight: American added the Phoenix route just days after Breeze Airways announced their own plans for a direct flight to the “Valley of the Sun.”
  • King of the hill: There are now three carriers offering direct flights from XNA to PHX between American, Breeze, and Allegiant. Allegiant has held the majority of the PHX travel, but American has long been XNA’s dominant carrier.
