Louisville Lands Daily Nonstop Los Angeles Flight to Grow and Attract Businesses for Kentucky
Friday, November 09, 2018
An American Airlines daily nonstop flight between Louisville International Airport (SDF) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will boost business travel options for multiple regions of Kentucky while helping attract both West Coast and international corporate investment, Gov. Matt Bevin said during an announcement today.
“To recruit business and grow jobs, we must make it easy to get to and from Kentucky as directly and quickly as possible. This new flight by American Airlines adds another great option for people to travel from LAX to Louisville and surrounding communities,” Gov. Bevin said. “Currently, it takes the better part of a day to reach Louisville from Los Angeles, causing an economic development pinch point for much of the Bluegrass State. This new route, built around a business traveler’s schedule, will benefit companies already here in Kentucky and serve as a powerful economic development tool in recruiting additional corporate investment from the West Coast and Asia.”
