American Airlines will soon have a non-stop flight from Louisville to Los Angeles.
City officials announced the new route Thursday, which they said would be the first of its kind between Louisville and the West Coast.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says the flight will attract more business.
“This is a big deal for the tourism of our city. Not to mention, obviously, the business relevancy as well," Fischer said.
American Airlines’ daily nonstop flights from Louisville to L.A. are set to start April 2, 2019.
