American Airlines will be offering flights between Tweed New Haven Regional Airport and Charlotte-Douglas International Airport starting Saturday.
The airline is offering non-stop Saturday service from New Haven to Charlotte, one of the largest hubs in the country.
Previously Tweed's farthest commercial destination was Philadelphia.
Tweed has been working to expand its runway to boost business, but a resolution supporting lengthening the main runway didn’t make it to a final vote in May.
