American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will add nonstop service between Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wis., and New York-LaGuardia Airport beginning Jan. 9. American Eagle will operate round-trip service between the two cities using 37-seat Embraer jets.
“Our new service gives Madison customers easy access to New York’s La Guardia airport, just minutes from Manhattan,” said American Eagle President Peter Bowler. “There is a strong demand for this market and we’re pleased to be able to provide it.”
"This is great news, especially for businesspeople seeking direct flights between Madison and New York City”, said Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI). “New York-based businesses are much more likely to have operations or contractors in the Dane County area with more direct flights. I look forward to even more nonstops to and from the Dane County Airport and thank American Eagle for their wise investment in our community."
“This flight offers nonstop service for Dane County’s business travelers to New York City, one of the world’s greatest centers for commerce and culture,” said Kathleen Falk, Dane County Executive. “Thanks to American Eagle for recognizing this mutually beneficial opportunity and to Brad Livingston, the airport director, and his staff for their excellent work in making this flight possible. Dane County continues to be committed to expanding the nonstop flights available at our airport.”
The schedule for the new service is as follows (all times local):
Madison to New York-LaGuardia (MSN-LGA)
|4829||5:40 p.m.||9:01 p.m.||Sunday-Friday|
|New York LaGuardia to Madison LGA-MSN)|
|4837||3:40 p.m.||5:10 p.m.||Sunday-Friday|
The new service to New York is in addition to American Eagle’s seven daily flights to Chicago O’Hare and two daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth
International Airport from Madison.
