									American Eagle Airlines Announces Nonstop Jest Service
Between Dallas/Fort Worth and Columbus, Georgia

April 27, 2010

American Eagle Airlines, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will begin nonstop jet service
between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Columbus Metropolitan Airport (CSG),
beginning July 15. Eagle will operate the service with 44-seat Embraer ERJ-140 jets.

“American Eagle is pleased to introduce service to Columbus from our largest hub in Dallas/Fort
Worth,” said Gary Foss, Vice President – Planning and Marketing for the AA Regional Network.
“With two daily nonstops, customers in Georgia can make a day trip to DFW or enjoy convenient
connections to destinations throughout American’s global network.”

Situated on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, Columbus is home to Fort Benning, a major
U.S. Army post, as well as several large corporations and manufacturers. Visitors to the area can
enjoy numerous historic homes and museums, including the Columbus Museum and the National
Civil War Naval Museum.

“I want to welcome American Eagle Airlines to Columbus, Georgia,” said U.S. Representative
Lynn A. Westmoreland (R-Ga.). “We are pleased to have you serving Muscogee County and
South Georgia. By offering nonstop flights to Dallas/Fort Worth, you are opening up additional
flight options for our travelers. Not only will this provide more convenience for folks in this area, it
will also keep more money flowing into the local economy. Your addition is applauded by
travelers, business and economic development leaders, and the men and women serving in
uniform in the area. Thank you for expanding to Columbus.”

“Columbus Airport is thrilled with American Airline’s return to our market by offering nonstop
regional jet service to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport,” said Sherry Goodrum, Columbus
Airport Commission Chair. “This service will allow travelers from the Chattahoochee Valley to
access points to the west and internationally without having to either travel to or through Atlanta
first. Service to this hub will directly impact the community by stimulating travel to and from
Columbus, which will strengthen the local economy.”

The schedule for flights between Dallas/Fort Worth and Columbus (all times local) is:
