Written by American Airlines
American Airlines has resumed its popular seasonal service between Edmonton International Airport (YEG) and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) for the 14th consecutive year.


This year, American returns to YEG for an extended season, running until May 3 and increasing to two daily flights between Dec. 16 and March 3. All services are operated using Canadian built Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft offering 9 Business Class seats and 67 Main Cabin seats, 34 of which are ‘Main Cabin Extra’ seats with an extra three inches of pitch. Wi-Fi is available for every customer on board.

“We are delighted to be returning to Edmonton once more and offer more connectivity to and from Alberta,” said Rolando Guerra, American’s general manager of YEG. “Phoenix is a large and well placed hub and offers Canadian travellers great onward connections throughout the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica.”

From PHX, American operates over 260 daily flights to nearly 90 destinations. Popular connections from PHX include Aspen (ASE), Austin (AUS), Cancun (CUN), Mazatlán (MZT), Mexico City (MEX), Orlando (MCO), Palm Springs (PSP), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), and San Jose Del Cabo (SJD). American Airlines has three Admirals Club lounges located at PHX.

In addition to Edmonton, American also connects Alberta to the United States with year round services from Calgary International Airport (YYC) to Dallas/ Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

American is in the midst of more than $3 billion in planned improvements to give customers a superior travel experience around the world. These investments include fully lie-flat seats; international Wi-Fi; more in-flight entertainment options and power outlets; a new, modern design for lounges worldwide including in PHX; and an upgraded assortment of complimentary healthy food, cocktails and more.
