Traverse City's Airport Has A New Non-Stop Destination Coming

Feb. 1, 2021

The Ticker has learned that American Airlines will begin direct service between Philadelphia (PHL) and Traverse City (TVC) on June 3. American has been busy adding strong leisure destinations to its list of routes; this new service is expected to run only during the busy summer Traverse City tourism season. 

As Airport Executive Director Kevin Klein told the Traverse City Business News in January, the airlines "know our summer market performed well even during COVID times. And we also have the environment people want, with open spaces and outdoor activities."

Commenting on the new Philadelphia route, Klein tells The Ticker, "AA offers another great opportunity by adding PHL to our line-up. American planned this launch last year but COVID delayed the launch until 2021. This is a great sign for industry as flying continues to be the safest way to travel."
