American Airlines expands domestically with five new routes

American Airlines’ Miami to Austin-Bergstrom

On 5 March, Austin-Bergstrom Airport commemorated the inaugural flight of American Airlines to Miami, the ideal business and leisure destination that also provides an easy connection to Latin America and the Caribbean. The new sector is served daily by the oneworld member’s 737-800s.

  • American Airlines added five new domestic routes, of which four were launched from Miami (MIA) on 5 March. With the longest sector being the 3,360-kilometre route to Salt Lake City (SLC), and the shortest being inaugurated to Austin-Bergstrom (AUS), the oneworld member will face direct competition only on the route from Los Angeles (LAX) to Atlanta (ATL) from Delta Air Lines (76 weekly flights) and Southwest Airlines (20). As a matter of fact, the airline’s expansion at Miami is due in part to the start of “Spring Break” period, when university and college students are heading south for sun.
