By: Alexander Britell - October 9, 2020

American Airlines has kicked off its latest relaunch of Caribbean service, this time with resumed flights across The Bahamas, Grenada and Barbados. 

American Airlines just resumed flights from Miami to Freeport, North Eleuthera and George Town, Exuma in The Bahamas. 

Each of those flights is operating five times each week. 

The carrier also relaunched flights from Miami to Barbados and Grenada, both of which are also operating five times each week. 

On Oct. 10, American Airlines will launch once-weekly service from Miami to Marsh Harbour, Abaco and once-weekly service from Charlotte to Exuma.

“As we continue with the steady resumption of our operations throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, our teams throughout the region have been focused on providing our customers with a safe and seamless travel experience,” said Jose Freig, American’s Managing Director of Operations for the Caribbean and Latin America. “Through efforts that include our Clean Commitment, and soon, preflight COVID-19 testing in some markets, we hope to restore confidence in the safety of air travel.”

The airline’ Bahamas expansion comes as the destination prepares for a Nov. 1 revamp of its travel protocols, which will remove the mandatory quarantine period and add new testing requirements

Also this week, American relaunched thrice-weekly flights from Miami to the island of Bermuda in the Atlantic. 

This month, American is operating more than 300 weekly flights to 23 destinations across the broader Caribbean region, the carrier said.
