American Airlines is ramping up its regional service, adding a wave of new routes to the Caribbean region, the carrier announced this week.

The new flights include a new Caribbean destination: Barranquilla, Colombia, which will receive daily service from Miami beginning June 4.

That comes alongside an expansion of service to the French Caribbean island of Martinique, which will see an increase to four weekly direct flights out of Miami beginning June 4. The Martinique service will include flights on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

The carrier is also adding new Saturday service between Dallas Fort Worth and Grand Cayman, along with new Saturday and Sunday flights between Los Angeles and Belize City.

“As we celebrate our 25th anniversary in Colombia we are very excited to provide customers with new service to Barranquilla, a favorite destination for tourists and business travelers alike,” said Art Torno, senior vice president for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America at American Airlines. “This new destination in Colombia and new routes reinforce American’s commitment to serving Latin America and the Caribbean, providing customers more access to the region than any other US airline.”

Barranquilla is a Caribbean coastal destination that is seeing renewed interest in hotel investment, as Colombia continues to undergo a tourism boom.
