Los Angeles, CA - Today MetroAir announced two new routes from their Dallas Ft Worth hub to California. The first service began this morning to Burbank while service to Long Beach is expected to depart later this afternoon.
MetroAir's CEO, William Hogarth said "We are very excited to be launching these new routes to Burbank and Long Beach as they are key cities on the West Coast that have long been missing from our network. Burbank hasn't been seen since we acquired Cirrus Airways back in 2010 while Long Beach is a new city completely"
The airlines new routes will both run once daily from Dallas on an Airbus A319 with the flight to Burbank departing in the morning and Long Beach in the early afternoon.
Mr Hogarth said that "Both Burbank and Long Beach have been 2 of the most requested cities for some time and it is pleasing to be able to offer our Pilots and customers the chance to now fly directly to these fantastic cities."
The additional routes will add another 91000 seats to the airlines west coast offering which is already expansive.
In addition to these route launches it was reveled that MetroAir had re-launched service to Munich, Germany whilst discontinuing its service to Berlin - citing poor load factors.
