Passengers disembark American Airlines’ inaugural service between Miami and Cartagena, the airline’s only service to the Colombian city. The oneworld member, which launched the route on 15 December, will operate a daily rotation from its Floridian hub using its A319s, joining Avianca on the 1,778-kilometre city pair.
- American Airlines has added two US domestic routes and two South American services to its network this week, with the launches resulting in the Colombian city of Cartagena (CTG) joining the oneworld carrier’s route map. Launched on 15 December, American introduced a daily service from Miami (MIA), a 1,778-kilometre route that it will serve using its A319s. This is the only route that will face direct competition, with it going head-to-head against Star Alliance member Avianca which already provides a daily service on the city pair. Along with the introduction of Cartagena, the airline has also expanded its presence at Rio de Janeiro Galeao (GIG), adding a three times weekly link from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), a sector it will operate on its 767-300s according to OAG schedules and Flightradar24.com data. American already serves Galeao Airport from Miami and New York JFK. See how Cartagena Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
