American Airlines to Resume Nonstop Flights between Mineta San José International Airport and Charlotte

San José, Calif. – American Airlines has announced plans to resume daily, nonstop flights between Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) and its hub at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) starting Oct. 6, 2022.

“Thanks to our partners at American, we’re pleased to add Charlotte back to our nonstop route map,” said John Aitken, SJC Director of Aviation. “At a time when operational challenges have forced airlines mostly to trim rather than expand their schedules, it's great to see American convey its confidence in the Silicon Valley market by resuming this transcontinental route.”

American’s San José-Charlotte flights are conveniently timed for Bay Area travelers to make connections on to popular winter destinations across Florida, the Caribbean and Central America. American plans to operate these flights with Airbus A321 aircraft.

“We are excited to launch new service between San José and Charlotte this fall, complementing existing service to Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Phoenix,” said Philippe Puech, American’s Director of Short-Haul Network Planning. “This new route will better connect customers whose travel plans include San José, by allowing for even more one-stop connections throughout American’s global network.”

American last flew nonstop between SJC and North Carolina’s biggest city in 2018.
