May brings return of seasonal service to Boston and Chicago at SMF
Sacramento, Calif. (May 22, 2019) – Sacramento International Airport welcomed back two popular seasonal flights this month. American Airlines daily service to Chicago and JetBlue daily service to Boston. Both are great destinations for summer fun. Baseball fan? Both are fabulous cities for a summer baseball trip, or an unforgettable big city escape with rich history, world-class restaurants and incomparable nightlife.
“These are two of my favorite American cities, having lived in both places, visiting now is wonderful because there is even more to see and do,” said Cindy Nichol, Sacramento County Department of Airports Director. “We love having transcontinental access to Boston all summer as it’s such an amazing summer destination and a great jumping off point for European travel. And getting additional service to a great city like Chicago just helps make the route even more competitive for travelers.”
American’s service to Chicago began in early May. Chicago is a city rich in history and culture. Architecture buffs can enjoy the beautiful cityscape, historical river tours and culturally rich neighborhoods. Baseball fans won’t want to miss a trip to Wrigleyville for a game and the raucous fan base. Chicago also has a fabulous beach culture along the shores of Lake Michigan or rent a car and take a trip north to experience the famed summer lake culture of the upper Midwest.
