American Airlines News – American Airlines Establishes More Flights From CLT Airport To Caribbean | Zoom Fintech


American Airlines is offering a number of seasonal Caribbean flights to Charlotte Douglas International Airport this summer, including American’s first-ever route to Samaná in the Dominican Republic.

The flight to Samaná will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from June 5 to August 14.

American, CLT’s dominant carrier, will also begin operating seasonal flights to Marsh Harbor, Bahamas, and daily flights to Reno, Nevada, from June 3 to September 7.

And flights to and from San Juan, Puerto Rico, will double. American is increasing service from twice a day to four times a day between June 3 and September 7.

The carrier will also expand its summer service to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Traverse City, Michigan, moving from weekend-only flights to daily service from June 3 to September 7.

In December, American announced it was opening a new route out of Charlotte Douglas in May, the first and only non-stop flight from the airport to the Hawaiian capital.

The new flight will launch on May 6 and will operate twice a week until June 2, according to American. On June 3, flights to Honolulu will then operate daily until September 7.

Passengers return to airports

Passenger numbers are slowly recovering at CLT after plunging in March and April as the coronavirus pandemic hit North Carolina.

In August, the number of passengers leaving Charlotte Airport topped one million for the first time since March. In November, the latest monthly report available, 1.1 million people boarded planes departing from CLT.

Meanwhile, in December, American announced it was expanding its home coronavirus testing program. This test program now includes passengers traveling to domestic destinations that have COVID-19 restrictions, including Hawaii.
