Waterloo Regional Airport (KALO) adds extra Saturday flight through holiday season

WATERLOO | Waterloo Regional Airport is adding an extra weekend flight to its itinerary over the upcoming holiday travel season.

City and airport officials said Monday that American Airlines will operate a second flight to Chicago O’Hare International Airport on consecutive Saturdays between Dec. 20 and Jan. 3 out of Waterloo.

Flight 3423 will depart Waterloo at 3:05 pm.

The extra flight, combined with a recent change in equipment from the 44-seat Embraer regional jet to a larger 50-seat regional jet, will allow for more local residents to make travel plans from their local airport, said Keith Kaspari, the airport’s director.

“I think certainly as people continue to make last-minute plans for holiday travel over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, certainly having additional frequency on Saturdays is certainly a benefit for them to make travel plans out of Waterloo instead of other regional airports,” Kaspari said.

“And American wouldn’t do this if they didn’t think Waterloo was a good destination.”

Waterloo already has two departures to Chicago – 7:05 a.m. and 3:05 p.m. – Monday through Friday and 7:40 a.m. Saturday.

Passengers can book their travel through a travel agent or by calling American Airlines at (800) 433-7300 or at
