    Attention South Florida: American Airlines Offers Great Fares for Getaways to the Caribbean

    Even people who live in paradise need a vacation from time to time. If you're a resident of sunny, vibrant South Florida, now is a great time to get away, thanks to some terrific low fares now being offered by American Airlines.

    American and its regional affiliate, American Eagle, have put many Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Caribbean destinations on sale for travel through early summer from both Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

    Together, American and American Eagle fly to dozens of spots from South Florida (we have more flights to more destinations from South Florida than any other airline), offering customers a combination of convenient flights, low fares and great service unmatched by competitors. And travelers on American and American Eagle have the opportunity to earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles wherever they fly.

    Beautiful beaches, luxurious resorts, fabulous shopping, picturesque sites, and perhaps family and friends are just a short flight -- and a great fare -- away on American Airlines. When you're ready to leave paradise for ... well, more paradise ... contact American Airlines, a founding member of the oneworld® Alliance.
