American Airlines Launching More Routes

American Airlines Launching More Routes this Summer

American Airlines is resuming more routes and launching new ones tis summer, as it continues to rebuild its network to match demand. The airline expects to fly more than 90% of its domestic seat capacity compared to summer 2019 and 80% of its international seat capacity compared to 2019.

“Throughout the pandemic, our trademark has been to build a schedule based on what customers tell us they want and need,” said American’s Vice President of Network Planning Brian Znotins in the press release. “And today, they are telling us they’re eager to get back to travel. With our summer schedule, we can offer customers the best network and continue welcoming them safely back to the skies.”

Domestic Routes

Besides all the flights that are on sale now, the airline 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).

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)

And 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 is also high on travelers’ lists so American Airlines has more flight choices to places like Asheville, North Carolina (AVL); Kalispell, Montana (FCA); and Jackson, Wyoming (JAC), which are already available for purchase.

International Routes

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).

The airline will also serve Colombia more than ever before with upgauged 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. In addition, the airline is working with JetBlue to introduce new American service between JFK and Athens (ATH) and TLV.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
