American Airlines kicked off a major relaunch of service to the Caribbean on Tuesday, resuming flights to a host of reopened destinations across the region. 

American resumed eight routes from Miami on July 7, including service to Santo Domingo, Santiago, Punta Cana and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; along with flights to Eleuthera, Georgetown, Exuma and Nassau, all in The Bahamas. 

In the next few weeks, American will be relaunching service to Saint Lucia, Aruba, St Vincent, St Maarten and Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. 

The vast majority of the relaunched flights will be from Miami; the remainder will be relaunching from Charlotte. 

“American has a long and proud history in the Caribbean and we are thrilled to continue resuming our operations, flying this month a schedule that includes up to 42 daily flights to 19 destinations in the region,” said Jose Freig, Managing Director for the Caribbean and Latin America. “We are looking forward to safely serving our customers in the Caribbean and to help restart travel and tourism in the region.”

Santo Domingo will see the biggest relaunch, with three daily flights, followed by Nassau with two flights each day and the Miami-Providenciales route, which will also operate twice daily. 

American had already been flying a limited schedule in the region, with flights to San Juan, St Thomas and St Croix. 

Last month, American resumed flights to Antigua, Kingston and Montego Bay. 

The carrier will be operating 42 daily flights to the Caribbean in July, with more flights expected for August.
