El Pasoans now have a new way to fly from El Paso into Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean thanks to American Airline’s expanded service into Charlotte, N. Carolina.

Whether it’s visiting the Mesoamerican pyramids in Mexico, laying out on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean, or exploring Europe, travelers now have a new easy way to fly out from the El Paso International Airport this summer.

Earlier this week, the City of El Paso and the El Paso International Airport announced that American Airlines began expanding its service to Charlotte Douglas International Airport in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to Brian Znotins, American Airlines Vice President of Network Planning, the Charlotte Douglas Airport is one of the largest hubs in America, offering more accessible access to the east coast and abroad.

As travel picks up this year, local military and leisure travelers from El Paso now have new options when traveling to Europe, the Caribbean, and Mexico.
