Attention football fans: traveling to support your favorite team is about to get easier. 

On Monday, American Airlines announced its new routes for the upcoming football season, including nonstop flights for two Cincinnati Bengals games.

Fans based in the Queen City can fly directly from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to Tampa, Florida, for the Bengals' Dec. 18 game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Cincinnati Bengals' first preseason game is Aug. 12 at Paul Brown Stadium.

The nonstop flight departs from CVG on Saturday, Dec. 17, and returns to Cincinnati on Monday, Dec. 19. 

American Airlines is also offering direct service from Kansas City, Missouri, to Cincinnati for the Bengals' game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 4. Out-of-towners hoping to catch a rematch of last season's AFC Championship Game will now have a much easier time traveling to Southwest Ohio.

The airline is also adding more seats between the Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Green Bay, Wisconsin, for every Green Bay Packers regular season home game. Outbound flights for the games will depart Friday evening or Saturday morning, and return Monday morning.
