American Airlines will use buses for hops to Philadelphia | Pennsylvania News

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines has hired a bus company to ferry passengers between Philadelphia and two airports that are only a short plane ride away.

Service will begin June 3 between Philadelphia International Airport and airports in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Atlantic City, New Jersey, the airline with bus company called Landline announced Thursday.

Landline and American promoted bus service as an easier way to get between Philadelphia Airport and Lehigh International Airport in Allentown 73 miles away, and Atlantic City International Airport 56 miles away. Brian Znotins, U.S. vice president of network planning, said it would help connect customers to the airline’s international flights from Philadelphia.

American’s regional subsidiary, American Eagle, operates flights from Allentown to Chicago and Charlotte, North Carolina. Fort Worth Airline does not serve Atlantic City.

Landline, based in Fort Collins, Colorado, has similar agreements with United Airlines in Denver and Sun Country Airlines in seven cities in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The company said it raised $28 million to expand its geographic reach.
