American Airlines will add five weekly flights between Mérida and Dallas, Texas, starting March 3.
Customers may begin booking flights for this new route this Sunday, Oct. 4.
“The addition of Merida gives our customers 21 destinations in Mexico, and we’ll now operate nearly 120 daily flights between our two countries,” said Art Torno, senior vice president – International and Cargo. “American was the first international airline to fly to Mexico in 1942 and we’ve been one of the leading international carriers in the country ever since.”
American is in the midst of more than $2 billion in planned improvements. These capital investments include fully lie-flat seats; international Wi-Fi; in-flight entertainment options and power outlets; refurbished Admirals Club lounges worldwide; and an upgraded assortment of complimentary healthy food and cocktails.
American is taking delivery of more than 100 new aircraft this year, giving it the youngest fleet of any U.S.-based network carrier. Orders include the Airbus A320 and A320neo family, A350-900s, Boeing 737 MAX, 777-300ERs and 787s, which will make American’s fleet even younger, more modern and fuel efficient.
The new route is pending regulatory approval.
