The Cool Factor

  • AN Act of courage in Montgomery Sparked a National Movement... Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.
  • Paddles Up!…the Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival was the first in Alabama and is now the largest Dragon Boat Festival east of the Mississippi and one of the largest attended festivals in the River Region.

American Airlines Relaunches Non-Stop Flights to Washington, D.C.

Friday, April 2, 2021

(Montgomery, AL) – On Sunday, April 4, 2021, American Airlines will resume non-stop flights from Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) to Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, D.C. 


The service, which began in January 2020, was suspended at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when air travel drastically dropped across the nation. Since that time, air traffic has rebounded at MGM as business and leisure travel increase. 


“The convenience of a day trip makes the MGM-to-DCA flight schedule a customer favorite.  Passengers can leave early morning and return to Montgomery in time to put the kids to bed,” said Marshall J. Taggart, Jr., Executive Airport Director.   


“Our customers have consistently inquired about the return of the non-stop flight to Washington, D.C., and we are so pleased that American Airlines has restored this service.” 


American Airlines also will continue to offer three daily flights to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). 


Same-day flights to DCA are available for purchase at 


MGM is committed to delivering a world-class customer experience. Montgomery Regional Airport offers non-stop flights to Atlanta, Georgia (ATL); Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT); and Dallas, Texas (DFW). MGM currently serves the region with four daily flights by American and five daily flights by Delta.  For more information on the airport, visit
