One June 5, the carrier launches what will be four weekly flights between Miami and Martinique (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays).
On Saturday, the carrier launches Saturday service between Dallas-Fort Worth and Grand Cayman, along with Saturday and Sunday flights between Los Angeles and Belize City.
The Martinique service, as previously reported by Caribbean Journal, will expand from four times weekly to six times weekly beginning July 2.
American’s regional expansion has ramped up as competitor JetBlue has significantly increased its reach in the wider Caribbean Basin.
