Daines Applauds New Direct Flights from MSO to Dallas and Chicago

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today applauded American Airlines' announcement that it will offer direct flights from Missoula (MSO) to Dallas (DFW) and Chicago (ORD).

“Tourism is one of the Treasure State’s greatest economic drivers and now travelers from Dallas and Chicago will be just one stop away from everything Montana has to offer,” said Daines. “More flights in and out of Missoula also means more choices for Montana families and more business and job opportunities in our state.” 

"We are thrilled to welcome American Airlines to Missoula and Western Montana today,” said Cris Jensen, Airport Director at Missoula International Airport. “These flights would not be possible without community support. They provide an excellent opportunity for travelers to access Dallas (DFW) and Chicago (ORD) with easy connections to international destinations and a new opportunity for the rest of the country and world to witness the beauty of Montana.”

American Airlines will start daily year-round service from Dallas to Missoula on June 7, 2018 and will also begin summer daily seasonal service from Chicago to Missoula.
