Miami Airport celebrated on 2 October the inaugural flight of American Airlines to Cap-Haitien with a special event. Cutting the celebratory ribbon is the Haitian President, Michel Martelly.
Parrell Grossman, Bismarck City Commissioner, welcomed American Airlines to the city on 2 October, along with an entourage of ambassadors from the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce.
- American Airlines, which in the previous week added two new routes from Philadelphia, continued to expand its network with three new airport pairs on 2 October, all of which are served daily. Operated by Envoy Air’s 50-seat ERJ 145s, American landed at Bismarck, ND (BIS) from Chicago O’Hare, IL (ORD) and Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (DFW). In addition, the airline commenced operations on the 1,067-kilometre sector from Miami, FL (MIA) to Cap-Haitien (CAP) in Haiti, utilising its 150-seat 737-800s. The airline will face no competition on any of the three new additions. Commenting on the arrival of American at Bismarck, Greg Haug, Airport Manager, said: “We are beyond excited to welcome American Airlines to the community today. Having another network carrier providing global access to two major hubs is a huge economic advantage to the region.” See how Miami Airport’s FTWA compares to the others sent in this week from around the world.
