New Non-Stop Flight Service Connects Eugene To Dallas/Ft. Worth

Denisse Leon

A new non-stop flight between the Eugene Airport and Dallas-Fort Worth International begins today (3/4/21.)

Acting Airport Director Cathryn Stephens says the American Airlines service is a welcome addition to their current flights.

“We really need some additional eastbound service," says Stephens.  "So this is a great way if you’re either going south or if you’re headed to the east coast, it’s a great connecting point. So this should provide a lot more options for our local passengers and some good connectivity from the IDFW hub.”

COVID-19 protocols remain in place, which includes wearing masks during flights.

Stephens says both the Eugene and Dallas-Fort Worth airports have received accreditation by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council for their cleanliness and sanitation efforts.
