Today American Airlines mainline launches new routes to Grenada, Recife, and Salvador da Bahia.

American Airlines' daily Miami-Grenada service marks the return of American Airlines jet service to Grenada for the first time since 1999. American will operate a daily 737-800 between Miami and Grenada. The inaugural flight left MIA on time today. The aircraft will RON at Grenada daily. American Eagle continues to offer ATR service to San Juan. This is the only daily non-stop flight between Grenada and the mainland U.S.

Today also marks the launch of American Airlines' daily Miami-Salvador-Recife-Miami route, which will operate with a 767-300ER. American Airlines is the first U.S. airline to ever fly to Salvador da Bahia, and marks the return of U.S. airline service to Recife for the first time since 1991, when Pan Am flew Miami-Recife via Caracas. While Salvador has enjoyed non-stop flights to Miami since 2004 on TAM, this is Recife's first non-stop flight to the U.S. since Varig ended a weekly Miami-Recife service in fall 2001.

On Tuesday, American Airlines will inaugurate non-stop service from Miami to Belo Horizonte, Brazil. This will mark the return of AA to CNF after a four year absence (last service operated 30 September 2004), but it will also be the first time American Airlines will fly to CNF non-stop. It will also be CNF's first non-stop service to the U.S. since United ended MIA-CNF in 1996.

Tomorrow American Airlines also re-launches daily flights between Miami and Antigua, discontinued in October 2001. Weekend service, however, was began this past September following the discontinuation of mainline service on SJU-ANU.

Great week for AA at AA at MIA with five new international destinations, and 2009 promises to bring at least five more...

AA now flies to 105 cities non-stop from Miami - 104 year-round routes and one seasonal route (Eagle County, Colorado).

Excellent development for AA at MIA! I hope by next year we will see MXP, BCN, ASU, CTG, and maybe COR.

When Pan Am started REC, they actually flew it nonstop from MIA with an A310. After the DL acquisition of PA's transatlantic operation (and all of PA's A310s), they were only left with A300s which had to make the stop in CCS.

According to information, AA averaged load for the coming flights is 60%. Considering the service is daily and operated with B767 I would assume it is a good load for such new route. It would also be interesting to see the development of yields.

CNF flights could be increase in one frequency (up to 4 weekl) depending on DOT decision regarding UA 2 dormant positions.

Hey Everyone,

I'm in the inagural flight tomorrow to CNF  Smile I will let you know who it goes. The seat map shows it pretty empty, so I won't even request an upgrade and will take the 3 seat coach bed  Smile

I'm so glad this flight is back!

Tony

And that is reliable because of AA's extensive route network. Not to get off-topic, but Pan Am claimed they flew to over 100 cities from MIA in late 1989 (IIRC it was the 10/29/1989 timetable), but it appears they only flew to half that. Were they referring to the entire Pan Am network?



It's a Great Day for Hockey!

They might have been referring to the entire network, or including same-plane flights (i.e. maybe the MIA-CDG service had flight number contiunation to Zurich or somewhere else?).

Same-plane service was a lot more common back in the day.

AA actually does have daily, no-change-of-plane 763 service between Miami and Honolulu that has been running for over a decade; they used to even advertise it on route maps.

Well, Valencia will start once they get permission, but that's never going to happen at this rate.

AA met with reps in Guyana this past fall, not sure how that went, but it's a possibility.

Also maybe another city or two in Brazil, I think they want to get into Fortaleza. That would happen in the fall 2009.

I'm surprised they haven't followed Spirit to Cartagena yet.

Also, with fuel dropping and dropping, a return to Barranquilla will not surprise me, but I haven't head anything.

A lot of expansion to touristy destinations will depend on AA securing subsidies, resort contract, etc. For example, AA will gladly start MIA-BON given the right subsides.

And this flight begin to bring to Northeast some Direct Investment. Hilton will open in 2011 the third hotel in Brazil in Salvador.

Probably using the weekly frequency DL returned on MAO-ATL.

So tell us about the flight. First flight is full on Business because also of invitations made by AA.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !
