More Nonstop Flights Added to Tucson

Starting next year, Tucsonans will have two more nonstop flight options out of Tucson International Airport.

On Jan. 18, Florida-based Via Air will begin offering nonstop flights to Austin, Texas on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Beginning Feb. 16, American Airlines will have a new daily nonstop flight between Tucson and Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The overnight "red-eye" flight from Tucson will depart at 12:30 a.m. and arrive in Charlotte at 6:18 a.m. The 7:30 a.m. flight from Charlotte will arrive in Tucson at 10:04 a.m.

Both departure and return times will be an hour earlier starting March 1.
