American Airlines will reinstate a key commuter service between the cities of Boston and New York this fall, as first reported by Ishrion Aviation.

The Dallas-headquartered carrier’s service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) will start on October 29, 2023.

Here are the details about the newest service additions to the Northeast corridor.

American Will Operate Boston to LaGuardia Once Again

American Airlines hasn’t operated flights between Boston and New York’s LaGuardia since the Shuttle service was eliminated in 2022. As part of the now ceased Northeast Alliance (NEA) between American and JetBlue, American had handed over all operations between the 2 airports to JetBlue.

Given the government-mandated dissolution of the Northeast Alliance, American was left with no market share on the route and will thus reinstate a total of 4 daily round-trip services. Meanwhile, JetBlue will continue to operate up to 12 daily round-trip services between Boston and LaGuardia.

The schedule for American’s new frequencies between Boston and LaGuardia is as follows:

BOS to LGA6 a.m.7:29 a.m.
BOS to LGA 10:15 a.m. 11:32 a.m.
BOS to LGA2:20 p.m. 3:38 p.m.
BOS to LGA6:25 p.m. 7:43 p.m.
LGA to BOS7 a.m. 8:21 a.m.
LGA to BOS12:20 p.m.1:34 p.m.
LGA to BOS4:25 p.m.5:40 p.m.
LGA to BOS8:30 p.m.9:45 p.m.

American’s 4 daily services between Boston and LaGuardia will join the 5 daily services it operates from Boston to JFK, bringing the total number of American services between the 2 cities to 9.

The aircraft that are scheduled to operate the services are American’s fleet of Airbus A319s. The jets comprise of 8 first-class seats in a 2-2 configuration while the economy cabin is split between Main Cabin Extra and Main Cabin with 24 and 96 seats, respectively.

Hot Tip:

If you’re a frequent flyer with American Airlines and find yourself paying cash for your tickets, then it would be worth considering one of the co-branded American Airlines credit cards which will earn you bonus AAdvantage miles and Loyalty Points for your purchases as well as a host of other benefits with flying American.

Final Thoughts

New Yorkers and Bostonians will have a new option to choose from when planning travel between the 2 cities this fall.

American’s 4 daily services will bring it into third place for the number of services between Boston and LaGuardia after Delta and JetBlue, both of which offer over 10 daily frequencies.
