As it prepares to launch a wave of new Caribbean routes for the upcoming winter season, American Airlines is already planning for the spring.

The carrier has announced another series of new routes set to begin in for the 2019 summer season, Caribbean Journal has learned.

The new routes will be headlined by the May 3 launch of a new daily service between Miami and Santiago de Cuba.

American’s major expansion push will begin in late December, a significant expansion of its Caribbean network first announced earlier this year that will include eight new Caribbean routes.
