American Airlines, pending DOT approval, will increase service between Miami and Sao Paulo to eighteen departures a week. This is in addition to an already approved increase of service between Miami and Rio de Janeiro, the only non-stop service between the US and Rio, effective 16 December 2003. Schedules and equipment will be announced pending approval, but it is likely to be operate as a daylight service with a 767-300ER.

American currently provides two daily flights between Miami and Sao Paulo. One operates with a 2-class 767-300ER and the other with a 3-class 777-200ER with American's Flagship Suite service. American also provides daily 777-200 service between Sao Paulo and New York City/JFK and daily 767-300ER service between Sao Paulo and Dallas/Ft. Worth and Asuncion, Paraguay. As well, for passengers originating thier travels outside of Brazil, American also offers daily 767-300ER service to Belo Horizonte and daily 777-200 service to Rio de Janeiro.

Also, in the rumour mill is that in addition to four extra MIA-GRU flights, they may introduce 3 weekly non-stop flights between Miami and Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Loads to CNF are averaging over 75%, and that's for a tag on leg from GRU. If it is given the go ahead, AA will continue to operate daily service to CNF, from MIA 3 times a week and from GRU 4 times a week.

After this new USA transit visa policy which has affected all Latin American countries, is there still that much extra demand for AA flights to USA.

Lots of these pax must have taken AA to USA for onward transit flights to the Far East (Asia), Canada, Europe etc on other airlines having cooperation agreements with AA especially those like CX and QF.

Anyways good luck to them!

The O&D between Miami and Sao Paulo is well over 175,000 people per year, and that is being generous. And there are a ton of connections to US cities, especially Orlando and Washington, D.C.

Plus, Transit without Visa resume 2 October 2003, well before the flights start.

I hope that one day JFK-GIG will return, I think no airline is flying that
route right now.

No, nobody is, even though AA's daily JFK-GRU continues to GIG with a 777. However, the return is unlikely for a while. The new 9 weekly MIA-Brazil flights will be using the JFK-GIG unused frequencies. AA has applied for two more weekly frequencies with DOT. All of AA's frequencies to Brazil are unrestricted, meaning they can be used between any US and Brazilian gateways, which has caused objection from Continental, because they can't switch thier frequencies between gateways like AA, as well as UA, can.

Transit Without Visa will resume 2nd of October?

Are you sure MAH4546?

We have not heard nothing from the government.

IB needs the ITI and the TWOV program in order to stay in MIA.

Yes, I am sure. From day one, that was the plan. Again, from the Miami Herald:

"The suspension, which became effective at 11 a.m. Saturday, is for 60 days"
