In a boost for locals who travel internationally, American Airlines began offering daily year-round service from Charlotte to Germany on Saturday.

The flights will go to Munich and will be the first international long-haul flight launched by American Airlines from Charlotte since 2014.

“Charlotte’s unique location and cost-effective operation continues to give us opportunities to grow American’s service there,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning.

“Our new flights from Charlotte will provide German customers with access to our second-largest hub and onward connections to more than 120 destinations.
