The Northern Winter is about to get warmer as American Airlines continues to grow its footprint at Miami International Airport (MIA) with seven new routes and one brand-new international destination.

With more than 380 peak-day flights this winter, American says it solidifies its position as the largest airline at MIA with service to 150 destinations.

“With a more than 30 year-history at Miami International Airport, American is proud to serve as the hometown airline, providing our customers with an unparalleled network that includes unique destinations like Governor’s Harbour, Bahamas; Anguilla; and Sacramento, California,” said American’s Vice President of MIA Hub Operations, Juan Carlos Liscano.

“Next winter we’re proud to continue to invest in the undisputed gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, a true point of pride for our more than 14,000 locally-based team members.”

From MIA, American operates flights to more than 85 unique destinations, including more than 45 in Latin America and the Caribbean.

With service to more than 70 destinations across the U.S., American will offer the most convenient way for customers to take in all that Miami has to offer or enjoy one-stop access to the largest network of destinations across Latin America and the Caribbean of any U.S. airline.

Starting Feb. 3, American will become the only U.S. carrier flying nonstop from MIA to Governor’s Harbour, Bahamas (GHB). Service will operate twice weekly on Embraer E175 aircraft, complementing the airline’s winter schedule for the Bahamas that will include up to 14 daily departures to six destinations.

Additionally, the airline will expand its winter schedule from MIA to Latin America and the Caribbean, now including more than 140 peak-day departures to more than 70 destinations, including Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR); Cartagena, Colombia (CTG); and Tortola, British Virgin Islands (EIS).

This winter, American will offer the most convenient nonstop access to MIA with service from seven new domestic destinations.

The new domestic destinations include year-round daily service to Portland, Oregon (PDX) and Sacramento, California (SMF); as well as seasonal weekly service to Buffalo, New York (BUF), Cedar Rapids, Iowa (CID); Lexington, Kentucky (LEX); Wichita, Kansas (ICT) and Wilmington, North Carolina (ILM).
