American Airlines recently announced that it will begin new nonstop service to 6 cities starting June 7th. Two of those cities are Omaha and Des Moines. I have already seen how this will benefit us in getting to international destinations like Cancun and London. There could be either some short or long layover times but in the end it does keep a few more dollars in your pocket. In the case of one client, they could meet in Philadelphia and fly over to Europe together and not have to find a common connecting city. In certain cases, I've seen Des Moines offer slightly lower pricing because they are closer to the East which means less time and fuel lost/used.
