FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The parent of American Airlines plans to build a new operations center in North Texas to oversee flight planning, dispatch and monitoring.

American Airlines Group Inc., formed by the carrier’s 2013 merger with US Airways, made the announcement Wednesday in a letter to affected employees.

The Dallas Morning News reports the company did not disclose a location for the new facility, other than saying it won’t be far from headquarters in Fort Worth. Officials cited the need for more space and upgraded technology for replacing a nearby operations center.

American Airlines and US Airways merged in December, resulting in two flight centers.

American in January announced plans to close an operations center near Pittsburgh, with about 600 employees, and said those workers would have a chance to relocate.
