Portland, Maine – The Portland International Jetport (PWM) today announced that American Airlines, the Jetports largest carrier, will start non-stop jet service to Chicago O’Hare International Airport starting June 7, 2018. The new service will be operated twice daily on 70 seat regional jets.

“We are thrilled to have American Airlines make their second air service announcement in a month, growing service here at Portland! Today’s announcement of Chicago will add additional westbound capacity to our market which has been a strategic focus of the airport to meet the business needs of our community” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director.

American Airlines is the largest carrier at the Portland International Jetport with existing service to Charlotte, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. Last month American Airlines announced New York LaGuardia service starting April 3, 2018 and today’s announcement means American will service five non-stop destinations out of PWM, allowing for even more service and greater connections across the American network.
