Gerald R. Ford International Airport has announced a new non-stop route that will begin in time for spring break.

The airport said today American Airlines will offer non-stop service to Washington, D.C.’s Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, or DCA.

Starting on April 4, the service will be operated by American Eagle. It will feature 12 weekly round trips.

The flight schedule for the new service includes departure times from Grand Rapids twice daily at 7:20 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. from Sunday through Friday and one daily departure at 9:40 a.m. on Saturdays.

Service departing DCA and returning to GRR is twice daily at 10 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. from Sunday through Friday, with a 4 p.m. daily departure time on Saturdays.

Tickets are on sale beginning today.

Phil Johnson, Ford airport interim president and CEO, said non-stop service to Reagan National Airport has been a “target market of ours.”

“We are happy to have this route added for both our leisure and business travelers headed to the Washington, D.C. area,” he said.

Out of Ford airport, American Airlines also offers non-stop service to Chicago-O’Hare, Dallas Fort Worth, Charlotte and Philadelphia.
