The local newspapers of Natal (NAT), Brazil, are reporting that an AA sales manager spent several days in the city to consider the possibility of MIA-NAT flights. Natal is becoming such a strong leisure destination that its international traffic surpassed that of Recife (REC), which has a much bigger economy. Several new hotels are slated to open in Natal and its airport may see half a million int'l passengers in 2005. One newspaper also mentioned TAP is increasing the frequency on LIS-NAT.

That would be cool! That would give MIA service to Rio, Sao Paulo, Manaus, Salvador do Bahia and if it happens..Recife.

But I think Porlamar (Isla Margarita) in Venezuela will beat Recife. Word is from AMR Corp that AE will begin charter service to the island from SJU this summer!

Before Recife, I would also see daily Miami-Valencia (Venezuela) start finally, it has been on hold foreverrrrrrrr and AA is very interested in launching this route.

But who knows maybe AA will swing the other way and target Brazil now! Considering the surge in popularity of Brazil to the European and U.S. market as of late.

So it is true. I heard rumors last week about AA flying to some city in the northeast of Brazil.

My guess it will be a 757, anyone?

They don't fly to MAO nor SSA. Those destinations are codeshared with JJ.

I put my money on AA mainline 738 MIA- Valencia - MIA.

American Eagle's SJU - Margarita Island - SJU charters seem to be coming soon also!

Like I said, the city that hosted AA was Natal, not Recife.

It's been said in another thread that AA is looking into flying to India. As to Pakistan, I doubt it. An AA aircraft in Pakistan would be a high profile target for attacks. And the market is much smaller than India.

unfortunately true, but as being part Pakistani, i'd be more than glad to take AA (if their service is good)

If AeroCivil gives the ok, my money is on BAQ.

I did not say AA flies those routes, I said MIA receives service, read my statement thoroughly. Meaning...in general!  Wink

Excuse me, I meant Natal.  Smile

Also, some not so good news:

According to another online tourism-focused paper, AA was in NAT just to see what the market is, and as of yet they have no plans to open a destination in the NE of Brazil. The reason they presented was the growth in investments and European tourists in the area.

Do you know why was MIA-BAQ service discontinued? Was it AA's decision or Colombia's?

I remember reading in AA.com (sorry but I could not find the link) that they were going to commence charter service SJU-PMV. Also, I believe American Eagle was looking into doing SJU-VQS.

AA going to NAT is great step for the airline. It is just another way in showing its commitment to the Latin and Brazilian community.

Good luck, AA!

If I am not mistaken, some time ago AA had requested and filed w/ Colombian Civil Aviation Authorities to serve Medellin along w/ their exisiting flights to Bogota, Cali, Cartagena and Baranquilla. If I have the story correct, the authorities granted AA service to Medellin but w/ one condition, either you serve Baranquilla or Medellin; not both. I believe AA had been after Medellin for a while and well ultimately saw more potential in that route.

AA has never flown to Cartagena. BAQ was the destination that was discontinued to serve MDE.
