Starting Feb. 3, American will become the only U.S. carrier flying nonstop from Miami to Governor’s Harbour, Bahamas. Service will operate twice weekly on Embraer E175 aircraft, complementing the airline’s winter schedule for the Bahamas that will include up to 14 daily departures to six destinations.
Additionally, the airline will expand its winter schedule from Miami to Latin America and the Caribbean, now including more than 140 peak-day departures to more than 70 destinations, including Liberia, Costa Rica, Cartagena, Colombia, and Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
New domestic destinations will include year-round daily service to Portland, Oregon, and Sacramento, California, as well as seasonal weekly service to Buffalo, New York, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Lexington, Kentucky, Wichita, Kansas, and Wilmington, North Carolina.
With more than 380 peak-day flights this winter, American will grow its seat capacity by 10% from Miami compared with winter 2022 and solidify its position as the largest airline at Miami International with service to 150 destinations.
“With a more than 30 year-history at Miami International Airport, American is proud to serve as the hometown airline, providing our customers with an unparalleled network that includes unique destinations like Governor’s Harbour, Bahamas; Anguilla; and Sacramento, California,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, American’s Vice President of MIA Hub Operations. “Next winter we’re proud to continue to invest in the undisputed gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, a true point of pride for our more than 14,000 locally based team members.”
