American Airlines’ new Miami-Mérida route is coming earlier than expected.

Flights will begin Friday, Oct. 28, a week sooner than originally announced. 

Additionally, Canada-Mérida holiday-season flights will be added in November, the state tourism director announced without providing further details.

Round-trip tickets will cost about $380 USD, said Saúl Ancona Salazar, head of the ministry of tourism promotion. He said in a press release that American Airlines has indicated strong interested in the Yucatecan market.

The route will operate daily, except Tuesdays and Wednesdays, complementing their Dallas-Mérida flights, which began in March.

American’s route will be operated by Republic Airways with an Embraer 175 aircraft.
