Flights are now underway from the Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) to Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) outside of the nation’s capital in Washington, D.C.
On Thursday, MGM launched its first direct flight to DC through American Airlines with 32 passengers onboard the 50-seat passenger jet.
For now, there is only one flight a day going back and forth between the two cities – a daily morning flight arriving in Montgomery and another flight departing back to DC later in the afternoon.
In October, airport officials made the announcement of the new direct flight.
“The Montgomery Airport Authority continues to work with our airline partners to expand service for passengers,” said, Tammy Knight Fleming, Board Chair. “This new, nonstop service connecting Alabama’s capital to the nation’s capital, one of the top destinations in our market, will be a tremendous asset for business travelers, government officials and the community at large.”
