 American Airlines will be upgrading to a larger Bombardier CRJ700 65-seat regional jet beginning August 16 th . American currently utilizes a 50-seat EMB-
145 regional jet for flights to and from its Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) hub.

“We have encouraged American to add larger aircraft to the Central Nebraska Regional Airport (GRI) flight schedule,” said Executive Director Mike Olson.

 “The larger aircraft will provide first and coach seating options for our passengers, and a much-needed increase in capacity to DFW.” In March, American had a record-breaking load factor of 90 percent.

“We want to thank our passengers for supporting our existing service to DFW and beyond, and American Airlines for their continued support to GRI.”


GRI currently offers twice daily air service on American to Dallas/Fort Worth and beyond, and twice weekly air service on Allegiant to Phoenix-Mesa and Las Vegas.
