FORT WORTH, Texas — American Eagle, the regional affiliate of American Airlines, will add a second daily nonstop flight between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Greater Peoria Regional Airport, beginning April 10. American Eagle will operate the second round trip with a 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 jet. In addition, American Eagle has five daily round trips between Peoria and Chicago O'Hare.

Richard Durbin (D-Ill.). "Expanding service is good news for air travelers, tourists and local commerce."
"I applaud American Eagle for expanding their Peoria to Dallas/Fort Worth service," said Rep. Ray LaHood (R-Ill.).
