The new flights are also introduced as an additional option to access Florida’s beaches during the Spring Break season.

“MLB is an excellent option for families, couples, and more looking to travel to Central Florida’s beaches,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning.

“DFW is our largest hub and this new service will provide countless communities and passengers with another great option during the peak Spring Break season.”

Flying to MLB will land passengers right in the heart of Florida’s Space Coast which is a perfect destination for travelers looking to satisfy their pent-up desire for a getaway.

Spacious beaches, uncrowded attractions, and frequent rocket launches from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center provide a safe option to enjoy much-needed vacations.

MLB also provides a calm, clean, and uncongested option for travelers coming to Central Florida as a smaller airport. Enhanced safety procedures and initiatives have been implemented along every step of the travel experience at MLB, and passengers can learn more by visiting FlyMLBsafely.com.
