As of April 2, 2012
American Airlines on Monday called extremely difficult, its decision to cancel its direct flights Santo Domingo and Santiago-New York as of April 2.
After careful review of our route network, including performance of individual routes within our global network, American has made the difficult decision to cancel service between New York (JFK) and Santo Domingo (SDQ) and Santiago (STI) effective April 2, 2013. The last scheduled flights on these routes will be on April 1, 2013.
American Airlines has proudly served the Dominican Republic for over 37 years. We remain committed to the Dominican Republic and will continue to serve the market through our Miami Hub, where we operate four daily flights to Santo Domingo, three daily flights to Punta Cana (PUJ), one daily flight to Santiago (STI) and Puerto Plata (POP) and one seasonal flight to La Romana (LRM). American Eagle also serves La Romana from Miami.
American will contact all passengers with reservations on the discontinued flights after April 1st in order to offer them alternative routing.
