American Eagle Airlines announced today that it will expand its maintenance facility at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) in Highfill, Ark. (Benton County), investing $10 million and bringing up to 100 new jobs to the area in the years to come. The expansion is driven in part by the recent addition of new American Eagle service from XNA to Miami, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh/Durham, N.C.

Peter Bowler, President and CEO of American Eagle Airlines, was joined by Arkansas Gov, Mike Beebe and other officials for the announcement.

American Airlines and American Eagle began service from Chicago O'Hare and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airports to XNA when it opened in November 1998 and added direct service to New York's La Guardia Airport in 2000. Since then, the airline has added service from XNA to St. Louis, Los Angeles, Miami, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh/Durham. Together, American Eagle, American and AmericanConnection offer a combined 24 daily departures to eight cities from Northwest Arkansas.

Given the cost of living in Northwest Arkansas if I worked for Eagle I'd transfer there.
