ASHEVILLE, NC (WSPA) – Asheville Regional Airport is getting another non-stop destination in 2019: Philadelphia.

The airport announced Friday that American Airlines will begin non-stop flights between Asheville and Philadelphia International Airport beginning May 3, 2019.

The flights will be offered daily between the two cities.

“The momentum of growth continues at Asheville Regional Airport,” said Lew Bleiweis, A.A.E., Executive Director. “American Airlines has a long history in our region, and is a core provider of air service at AVL, through their Charlotte hub. It is exciting that our community will have another excellent option for air service, not only to access the great city of Philadelphia, but to also connect to many additional domestic and international destinations.”

Philadelphia is the 16th non-stop destination available out of Asheville Regional Airport.
