American Airlines Launching More Routes this Summer
American Airlines will introduce 17 new routes available for sale starting on April 19, including daily flights between Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina (RDU) and Nashville, Tennessee (BNA).
Based on current customer demand projections, American intends to operate a schedule with domestic capacity almost equal to 2019. In response to increased leisure demand, on June 5, the airline is introducing eight new routes, operating on Saturdays, to experience the wonder of Orlando, Florida, and its endless outdoor adventures, including nonstop service from:
- Birmingham, Alabama (BHM)
- Dayton, Ohio (DAY)
- Indianapolis, Indiana (IND)
- Louisville, Kentucky (SDF)
- Memphis, Tennessee (MEM)
- Nashville, Tennessee (BNA)
- Pittsburgh (PIT)
- Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina (RDU)
For customers living in South Florida eager to travel to the West Coast or Northeast, the airline is launching widebody service from Miami (MIA) to Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK). All flights will operate on Boeing 777s this summer to match the increased demand.
The Great Outdoors
The great outdoors is also high on travelers’ lists and customers can look forward to more flight choices to places like Asheville, North Carolina (AVL); Kalispell, Montana (FCA); and Jackson, Wyoming (JAC), which are already available for purchase. And in addition to the nine previously announced new routes from Austin, Texas (AUS), beginning in May, American is introducing new Saturday flights between AUS and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS).
Colombia, Ecuador & More
The airline will also serve Colombia more than ever before with upgraded aircraft and recently announced service from JFK to Cali (CLO), Bogota (BOG) and Medellin (MDE) launching on May 6. Customers will also have increased access to Ecuador and Peru with even more capacity than 2019. And starting this summer, American will be the only U.S. carrier to serve Tel Aviv (TLV) and Suriname (PBM) from its MIA hub.
American Airlines and JetBlue
is working with JetBlue to introduce new American service between JFK and Athens (ATH) and TLV. However, due to the effects of the pandemic and the resulting weak demand, American will not operate to Edinburgh, United Kingdom (EDI), Shannon, Ireland (SNN) and Hong Kong (HKG) this summer. American will continue to serve these markets through London Heathrow (LHR) and Dublin (DUB), through American’s Atlantic Joint Business partners, British Airways and Aer Lingus.
