Starting on 4 April the airline will launch an hourly service between Chicago O’Hare and New York LaGuardia. The flight, that will be operated 15 times on weekdays, will have one special service for thirsty business travellers – free beer and wine in the main cabin.

“When you fly frequently for work, anything that can make the regular commute more comfortable is important,” said Alison Taylor, senior vice president, Global Sales and Distribution.

Vasu Raja, American’s vice president of network and schedule planning, told the Chicago Tribune: “It is something that is really to go and cater to the last minute business traveller, and make it as easy as possible for that person.”

“That’s why we’re pleased to offer valuable time-saving opportunities with our Shuttle, including a convenient and consistent schedule and extended check-in times for you and your bag.”

Appart from new shuttle flights, the carrier is launching a number of new domestic and international connections. New routes are planned to Budapest, Hungary, Prague, Czech Republic and Reykjavik, Iceland.

“In total, American will add 52 new nonstop routes to its domestic and international network,” the airline said in a statement.

Raja continued: “Our 2018 schedule opens up so many new possibilities of destinations.”

“We are making it easier and more convenient for our customers to fly on American to places that are important to them all over the world, from serving smaller cities more frequently to visiting places we’ve never flown before.”
