American airlines landing at SBP

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — Capitalizing on the surge in travel from San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP), American Airlines announced that starting today that it will begin using larger aircraft for its twice-daily flights to Dallas-Fort Worth.

“American is excited to introduce mainline service between San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport,” said Philippe Puech, American Airlines Director of Short-Haul Network Planning. “We’re eager to serve SBP with an Airbus A319 aircraft twice daily starting this month. The American team looks forward to connecting more customers to San Luis Obispo County with enhanced service.”

The airline previously flew the route using an Embraer E175, with 76 seats. At 128 seats, the A319 nearly doubles the number of available seats each day. The larger plane offers three classes, with 8 First Class seats, 24 in Main Cabin Extra, and 96 in the Main Cabin.

The aircraft upgauging comes at the start of SBP’s high season, and will help support the record number of passengers traveling through the airport. 2022 is expected to be the busiest year in the airport’s history. As more travelers choose to fly SBP, passengers are encouraged to arrive two hours before their flight, especially if they are checking baggage.
