American Airlines has given the final go ahead and made the announcement at the Redmond Airport Thursday.

 

Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger spoke at the press conference and told the crowd this is going to be a huge asset for the region.

 

"So the airport is the second economic generator.  I don't know what  the number one generator is, you can fight over that.  But without air services getting you in and out of the area, number one wouldn't be number one.  This to me is one of the most important things we will achieve in 2013."

 

The new daily flights to L.A. will start on June 12th.  The flights will leave for  L.A. just after 8 A.M. and will return to Redmond just before 9 P.M.

 

You can start booking flights and the American Airlines website starting this Sunday.
