American Airlines to break ground on Robert W. Baker Integrated Operations Center
American Airlines will break ground on the Robert W. Baker Integrated Operations Center in Fort Worth on July 8th. Earlier this year, American announced plans to consolidate the current American Airlines operations center in Fort Worth and the current US Airways operations center in Pittsburgh. The new facility will be located near American’s headquarters and Flight Academy south of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The state-of-the-art Integrated Operations Center will serve as the nerve center of American’s global network and will house more than 1,400 employees who plan, oversee and dispatch the airline’s more than 1 million annual mainline flights serving more than 140 million customers.
