American Airlines is the leading US carrier for flights to the Caribbean and Latin America — and its flight network is getting even more extensive.

The airline announced recently that it’s introducing eight new flight routes for this winter — including one route to a new Caribbean destination — as well as increasing service to several popular destinations. Bookings for these winter flights opened up earlier this month via America’s website and app.

Newly added American Airlines routes

Four of American’s new flight routes will connect John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York to various Caribbean destinations starting in November and December: a daily service to Bridgetown, Barbados, and Saturday-only services to Saint Lucia, Saint Maarten, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

North Carolina’s Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) will also see Saturday flights to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, making American the only major US carrier to fly to the Caribbean nation.

Those flying American out of Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) can now book new Saturday flights to Bridgetown, Barbados, and Liberia, Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, American is launching daily flights from Miami International Airport (MIA) to La Romana, Dominican Republic, starting in December. Not only will this make American the sole US carrier to service La Romana but also the most networked airline within the Dominican Republic.

Newly expanded American Airlines service

In addition to new routes, American is expanding 16 existing routes between the US and the Caribbean and Latin America, starting in December.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) will see the biggest increase in flights, with expanded service to three destinations in Mexico, as well as The Bahamas, Honduras, and the Cayman Islands.

Alongside additional flights to Bonaire, Jamaica, and the British Virgin Islands, travelers flying out MIA will also find increased service to Mexico, which is also true for travelers flying out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

Meanwhile, CLT is also getting more winter flights to Antigua.
