BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — American Airlines says it will launch daily, direct flights from Bismarck to Chicago and Dallas.

The flights are to begin Oct. 1. The two-year deal includes a $1 million minimum revenue guarantee, backed by a $500,000 federal Transportation Department grant and a $500,000 local match by Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce members.

North Dakota’s capital city currently is served with commercial service from Delta, United, Frontier and Allegiant.

Bismarck was one of five airports in North Dakota that set a record for passengers last year.
