American Airlines and American Eagle Add More Service to and From Mexico

American Also Will Expand Its Existing Codeshare Relationship With Alaska Airlines On Flights Between West Coast and Mexico

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines and its regional affiliate, American Eagle, are increasing their service to and from Mexico.  American said the additional service is a result of increased demand, in part related to the suspension of flights by Mexicana Airlines on Aug. 11.

Here are the new flights to be operated by American Airlines:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Mexico City – currently 4 daily round trips, increasing to 5 on Nov. 18.
  • Miami – Mexico City – currently 3 daily round trips, increasing to 4 on Nov. 18.
  • Miami – Cancun – currently 4 daily round trips on weekdays and 5 daily round trips on weekends, increasing to 5 every day of the week on Feb. 10, 2011.
  • Chicago – Mexico City – add one new daily round trip on Dec. 16.

Here are the new flights to be flown by American Eagle:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Guadalajara – currently 2 daily round trips – one on American Airlines and one on American Eagle. On Nov. 18, the route goes to two daily round trips on American.  On Dec. 16, the service will increase to 3 daily round trips – one new round trip on American Eagle, in addition to the two round trips on American.
  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Aguascalientes – currently one daily round trip on American Eagle, increasing to two on Nov. 18.
  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Leon – currently 3 daily round trips on American Eagle, increasing to 4 on Dec. 16.
  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Veracruz – new round trip on American Eagle, effective Feb. 10, 2011, pending government approvals.
  • Dallas/Fort Worth – Queretaro – new round trip on American Eagle, effective Feb. 10, 2011, pending government approvals.

Here are additional services to and from Mexico on which American intends to codeshare with Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air.  American will place its AA* code on flights operated by Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air in the following U.S.-Mexico markets, implementing the services later this year after all regulatory approvals are received:

  • Los Angeles – Mexico City***
  • Los Angeles – Guadalajara***
  • Los Angeles – La Paz (operated by Horizon Air)
  • Los Angeles – Loreto (operated by Horizon Air)
  • Los Angeles – Mazatlan
  • Los Angeles – Puerto Vallarta
  • Los Angeles – Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo
  • Los Angeles – Manzanillo
  • San Diego – Puerto Vallarta
  • San Francisco – Puerto Vallarta

*** American will be selling both local (Los Angeles area) and connecting service (to/from another American or American Eagle flight from other cities) on these two routes.  For all other markets listed, American will sell only connecting service.
