CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Travelers wanting to fly out of Yeager Airport in Charleston will soon have a new option.

Starting on Sept. 4, American Airlines will be offering a daily flight to Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

"This will help keep airfare out of CRW competitive," said Airport Director, Terry Sayre. "And it will provide additional options for our passengers to connect to new destinations."

American Airlines also offers flights from Charleston to Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

"Everyone at CRW is working tirelessly to improve our flight offerings, our facility and the general passenger experience," Sayre said. "We would not be where we are today without the support of our Governor, our Congressional Delegation and the Kanawha County Commission."

American Airlines and American Eagle offer an average of nearly 6,700 flights per day to nearly 350 destinations in more than 50 countries.
