American Airlines to Add Service From Fort Lauderdale to San Jose, Costa Rica, and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

American Will Also Upgrade Aircraft On Its Service from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti

American Airlines will bolster its Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fla., schedule on Dec. 13 when it adds new service to San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO), and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (SDQ). Additionally, American will upgrade to larger aircraft on some of its flights between Fort Lauderdale and San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU), and its flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti (PAP).

American's new flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Jose and Santo Domingo will feature one daily roundtrip using 148-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft. American's upgrade of aircraft from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan will include replacing one of its three daily roundtrips with a 267-seat Airbus A300. The other two daily roundtrips between Fort Lauderdale and San Juan will continue to be flown with 188-seat Boeing 757 planes.

In addition, American's once-daily roundtrip between Fort Lauderdale and Port-au-Prince will be upgraded to an Airbus A300 from the current 737-800 aircraft.

"We continue to see increased demand for service from Fort Lauderdale to Latin America and the Caribbean," said Henry Joyner, American's Senior Vice President - Planning. "These new flights and larger aircraft will help us provide the service our customers are asking for."

American Airlines is a founding member of the global oneworld® Alliance.
