American Airlines expands Latin America schedule

American Airlines plans to add eight new routes throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America later this year.

Expanded service includes new flights to Mexico City International Airport; General Rafael Buelna International Airport in Mazatlan, Mexico; Curacao International Airport; and Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Also on offer will be flights to Punta Cana International Airport; Gregorio Luperon International Airport in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; and Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito, Ecuador, all of which are pending regulatory approvals.

“As the premier carrier to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America with flights to 85 destinations, these additions highlight our commitment to providing our customers with a network that is second to none,” said Art Torno, American’s senior vice president for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America.

“We are committed to each country we serve, and these new routes allow us to contribute to and further promote travel and tourism to and from the region.”

American also plans to reinstate its service between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and Simon Bolívar International Airport in Caracas, Venezuela, on December 17th.

Flights will operate five times per week with Boeing 757 aircraft.

Those flights are now available for bookings.

Customers traveling to these destinations will have the ability to connect through American’s hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles and New York from nearly 200 destinations worldwide.

With these new routes, American will operate more than 1,750 weekly flights throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America – more service than any other airline.
