American Airlines to Expand Miami Services; Launch Boston - London Heathrow

American Airlines has unveiled plans to grow its international network with new and increased services from Miami (MIA) to:

Lima, Peru (LIM), beginning 7 April 2020
Santiago, Chile (SCL), beginning winter 2020
So Paulo (GRU), beginning winter 2020

The airline will also launch a new daily service from Boston (BOS) to London Heathrow (LHR) beginning 29 March 2020, and extend service to key European destinations including Rome (FCO), Dublin (DUB) and Barcelona, Spain (BCN).

Subject to government approval, the new routes will be available for purchase from 7 October, with the exception of GRU and SCL, which will be available for purchase in December.

"American's leading position in Miami is something we're incredibly proud of and committed to maintaining," said Vasu Raja, American's Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. "We have so many possibilities from our Latin American gateway and are excited for the opportunity to use our domestic strength to enhance our international network. We'll continue to grow, compete and thrive in a region of the world where we have a long history and a bright future."

American currently operates two daily flights to LIM from MIA, and next spring the airline will increase operations year-round to three times a day on a Boeing 757, providing more service than any other carrier to one of South America's largest cities.

And next winter gets even warmer with an additional flight to Chile's capital, Santiago, and a third flight to Brazil's largest city, So Paulo. Both services will be operated on a 777-200.

When new American nonstop flights from BOS to LHR launch next year, customers will have access to a total of five daily flights to choose from between American and joint business partner British Airways.

"Our new nonstop flight, combined with the service provided by our Atlantic Joint Business, gives customers the most robust schedule and the most premium seats between Boston and London," Raja said. "Boston customers have been asking for more service and we're delivering with this new flight, and our recently announced seasonal service to Nassau and Grand Cayman."

American's BOS to LHR flight will be flown on a Boeing 777-200, featuring 37 Flagship Business seats and 24 Premium Economy seats.

The new flight fits into the current British Airways schedule with a peak evening departure (American Flight No. 108) from BOS and adds a new morning departure from LHR (American Flight No. 109). Together, American and British Airways provide up to 71 flights every day between the U.S. and London.

And there's more good news for customers flying out of Boston, as International Airline Group (IAG) subsidiary LEVEL will operate three weekly flights from BOS to Paris Orly Airport (ORY) beginning 31 March 2020.

American is also extending seasonal flying dates on some of the most popular routes including service between New York (JFK) and Rome (FCO); Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Dublin (DUB); and Chicago (ORD) and Barcelona (BCN). These routes will now operate a month longer than their current schedule.
