American Airlines Announces Nonstop Service to Philadelphia

January 18, 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY, January – American Airlines announced today that it will begin nonstop service from Oklahoma City to Philadelphia, PA beginning June 7, 2018.  The new route will provide more connecting options to the Northeast and to Trans-Atlantic destinations.

“This is great news for our Oklahoma City travelers,” says Mark Kranenburg, airports director.  “Philadelphia is a market we have pursued with American for a while.  The new route provides options to an area of the country that has been underserved from OKC.  We anticipate great success for the service.”

Philadelphia International becomes the sixth American hub served nonstop from Will Rogers World Airport.  Other cities served nonstop by American from WRWA include:  Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago, Charlotte, Los Angeles and Phoenix.  The new service will bring the average number of daily departures by American to 19.

The new Philadelphia service will operate twice daily utilizing the Embraer 175 (E-175) aircraft.  The two daily flights are timed to make northeast connections in the morning and Trans-Atlantic connections in the afternoon.

The current schedule is as follows:
