Key West International Airport (EYW) will offer a new nonstop service through American Airlines from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) starting Feb. 15 through May 2, 2020 on Saturdays.
“This is the first time this route will be offered nonstop,” said Richard Strickland, Monroe County’s Director of Airports. “It will be a nice addition for travelers in the Northeast looking to escape the cold, or for our residents looking to visit New England.”
The newly added flight will be operated on an EMB-175 aircraft with seating for 76 passengers.
In addition to the direct Boston flights, Key West International Airport also provides direct service to Philadelphia, Chicago, Charlotte, Newark, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Tampa. American Airlines will also upgrade the Dallas/Ft. Worth service in December. Top markets include New York/Newark, Washington/Baltimore, Philadelphia, South Florida, and Chicago.
