American Airlines announced Friday that it will launch daily nonstop service from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport on April 2.
Tickets will go on sale, and flight times will be posted, beginning Sunday.
American will be the second airline to offer direct flights from RDU to LAX. Delta Airlines has offered seasonal flights between the two cities since 2006.
About 150,000 people travel to and from the Triangle and the Los Angeles area each year, according to RDU.
