Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Today, the first-ever direct flight from Dallas to Fargo landed at Hector International Airport.

The American Airlines flight flew in just after two, celebrating both a merger with U.S. Airways, and the arrival of their new Dallas connection.

The airline promises the new route will benefit area business and improve the economy in the Valley.

Dale Morris with American Airlines says, "when we first started announcing these routes and we announced we would be flying Dallas to Fargo, ya know, they start booking in advance. And as soon as we announced we were booking, that we had the service available for booking, this was the number one booked route of the new routes we were flying."

The Dallas connection is available daily. Almost 70-degrees in Dallas today.
