There's good news if you have a few national parks on your bucket list. American Airlines is expanding service to some beloved parks around the country. The carrier will offer a total of 17 routes to Montana and Alaska by next summer. Travelers departing from cities around the country will have more ways than ever to travel to gems like Denali National Park and Glacier National Park once the new routes are active.

American Airlines plans to add four new seasonal flights to Montana next year. Travelers will be able to get to Big Sky Country from some of the biggest hubs in the country once American adds the new routes to its roster. Flights to Bozeman (BZN) will be offered from New York (LGA), Los Angeles (LAX) and Philadelphia (PHL) while flights to Kalispell (FCA) will be offered from New York (LGA).

All of the new routes serving Montana are expected to launch during the summer of 2020. American Airlines customers will have more than 145 weekly flights in and out of Montana by next summer. This isn't the first time that American is experimenting with new Montana routes. American introduced three popular new routes to Glacier National Park in Kalispell during the summer of 2019.

Do you dream of enjoying some long summer days in the Last Frontier? American Airlines has some big plans for Alaska in 2020. The carrier is planning to add three new Alaskan routes next year. New service to Fairbanks (FAI) will be rolled out to make it easier for travelers to visit Denali National Park. In addition, American will be connecting Fairbanks (FAI) with Chicago (ORD) and Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). New service between Chicago (ORD) and Anchorage (ANC) will also be rolled out next year.
