American adds flights to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America


American Airlines announced it will add six new routes to Mexico and Latin America this summer.

Among the new routes is a Saturday flight between Dallas/Fort Worth airport and the Grand Cayman Islands that will start on June 6. The Fort Worth-based carrier will also add a once a week route between DFW and Managua, Nicaragua.

American said it will add daily flights between Los Angeles and Guadalajara and Miami and Barranquilla, Colombia. It will also start flights between Los Angeles and Belize City as well as flights between Miami and Monterrey, Mexico.

“This new destination in Colombia and five new routes reinforce American’s commitment to serving Latin America and the Caribbean, providing customers more access to the region than any other U.S. airline,” American senior vice president Art Torno said in a statement.

Customers can begin booking the flights on January 31.
