American Eagle Airlines has begun three-times daily nonstop jet services from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) to Allentown, PA (ABE) and Avoca, PA (AVP) and announced a new route to Manhattan, KS, using Embraer ERJ 140s and ERJ 145s.
"We’re delighted to celebrate this new service from Chicago," said Gary Foss, vice-president–planning and marketing, AA Regional Network. "Along with the service we introduced to Harrisburg in the spring, American Eagle now offers visitors easier access to destinations throughout the Keystone State."
The airline has also announced daily round-trip service between Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Manhattan Regional Airport (MHK) in Manhattan, KS, scheduled to begin on 18 November using Embraer ERJ 145s.
