Take Action Now! Tell the FAA and DOT You Support American Airlines’ LAN Plan!


American Airlines – the nation’s largest airline – has filed an application with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and U.S. Department of Transportation to continue their nonstop air service between Lansing’s Capital Region International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

American was granted a DCA slot exemption in spring 2016 and began service between Lansing and Washington, D.C., in July 2016. The exemption is slated to expire in July 2018 – which is why community leaders are rallying support for American’s extension request.

Please make your voice heard. On behalf of the airport’s “Fly Lansing” (LAN) team, we are asking you to tell the FAA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) that you support American Airlines’ application.

We need your help now. It is important that you reference American Airlines Slot Exemption – Docket Number FAA-2015-3491 in all your communications to the FAA and DOT.

American started service between LAN and DCA on July 5, 2016. Traffic volumes between LAN and DCA have tripled since the service started, federal data shows, with the average airfare paid dropping by 29 percent. Additionally, LAN’s total airport traffic has increased almost 21 percent since American entered the market, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation

Thank you for helping to ensure Lansing remains one of the strongest regional air service markets in the country for business and leisure travelers.
