PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Heading south? One airline can get you there nonstop.

American Airlines has announced it will begin daily year-round service from Philadelphia International Airport to Asheville, North Carolina, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, beginning May 3, 2019.

With the additional destinations, American Airlines will be the only one to offer nonstop flights from Philly to these two cities. 

If you're traveling overseas, American Airlines also announced it will offer more seats and premium economy on flights between Philadelphia and Prague in 2019 due to increased demand and ticket sales. The larger aircraft, also launching May 2019, will feature more than 500 additional seats per week.

With the addition of Asheville and Chattanooga, American Airlines will offer 13 direct, domestic flights out of Philly by 2019, including San Antonio; Des Moines, Iowa; Madison, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; Oklahoma City; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Worcester, Massachusetts; and Floridian cities Pensacola, Sarasota, Key West, and Melbourne.
