Just in time for holiday season, American Airlines announces seasonal service to Austin

PALM SPRINGS —American Airlines is growing at Palm Springs International Airport with new seasonal service to Austin, Texas.

American’s new seasonal service will operate daily Nov. 17 – 29 and Dec. 15 – Jan. 9, 2023, providing Coachella Valley residents with a second nonstop option to Austin for the holidays. American will join Alaska as the second airline offering service to Austin from PSP.

“American is excited to provide nonstop access from Palm Springs to Central Texas and more one-stop connections across the airline’s network this summer,” Philippe Puech, American Airlines Director of Short-Haul Network Planning, said in a prepared statement. “This additional flying is in direct response to the demand we saw in 2021. We look forward to connecting customers with their family and friends this holiday season.”

“We’re excited to welcome additional service to Austin,” said Harry Barrett, Executive Director of Aviation. “Our airport continues to offer more flight options for area residents, making it easier for them to choose to support their local airport. I want to thank American for growing at PSP.”

American will operate the route on a dual-class Embraer 175 aircraft offering Wi-Fi and 12 First Class seats, 20 Main Cabin Extra seats, and 44 Main Cabin seats.

With this addition, American will offer year-round service to Dallas/Fort Worth and Phoenix and seasonal service to Chicago O’Hare and Austin from PSP. American will also return their popular seasonal Chicago service on September 9 this year, nearly two months earlier than in previous years.
