American Airlines’ Latin America, Caribbean Traffic Declined in 2015


American Airlines Group had a relatively strong year overall in 2015, with one glaring exception: Latin America and the Caribbean.

The region was the airline’s weakest link in 2015, with a 2.8 percent drop in revenue passenger miles to the region, with a total of 31.2 billion.

Latin America and the Caribbean also posted the only reduction in available seat miles of any region the carrier services, with a 4.5 percent fall year-over-year to 39.7 billion in 2015.

The region did show a 1.3 percentage point increase in load factor last year.

American Airlines has been facing increasing competition in the wider Caribbean region in the last few years, particularly from quickly-expanding JetBlue.
