KANSAS CITY, MO – The arrival of new Airbus A321 aircraft has allowed MetroAir to begin expansion in several domestics markets this month, as well as freeing up other fleet types for international expansion as well. The most notable change comes in the form of 6 new routes from Dallas-Ft. Worth Int’l Airport. After attempting a push for market share at Austin in 2016, but falling short of expectations, MetroAir Operations has shifted its focus 200 miles north.
MetroAir has also announced the beginning of nonstop service to Glasgow, Scotland, which will be served from Chicago four times weekly on a Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
MetroAir’s daily flight to New Delhi, India will now originate in Chicago instead of Boston, allowing the airline to add a nonstop flight from Boston to Shanghai, operated by a Boeing 787-8 or 777-300ER aircraft depending on day of the week.
Other noteworthy additions to the MetroAir route network are a daily flight to Munich, Germany and Medellin, Colombia, from Chicago and Fort Lauderdale, respectively.
