American Airlines says it is increasing the size of the jets it flies between Peoria and Dallas-Fort Worth.
The airline says the new jets will have first class seats and more legroom even in coach.
The CRJ-900 jets also come with wi-fi.
General Wayne Downing Peoria International Airport Director Gene Olsen says the move comes on the heels of American adding a new non-stop route between Peoria and Charlotte, North Carolina which began November fourth.
The larger aircraft on the Dallas-Peoria route will be in service starting midd-February.
