American opens Miami-Samaná link in response to growing demand from travelers
The airline is “delighted” to expand connectivity with the Caribbean.
Samana is its fifth destination to be served in the Dominican Republic.
American Airlines recently launched the Miami-Samaná link. The new seasonal route, previously served from the airline’s Charlotte hub, will now operate from Miami on Wednesdays and Saturdays with Embraer E175 aircraft.
“We are delighted to continue to increase Miami’s connectivity to the Caribbean with the launch of our fifth destination in the Dominican Republic,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, vice president of MIA Hub Operations.
“As we continue our recovery, demand for travel to the Caribbean has remained strong, resulting in additional growth with new destinations such as Anguilla, Dominica and now Samana, a hidden gem in the Caribbean,” added
From Miami, American currently operates up to 76 daily flights to 35 destinations in the Caribbean, including up to 12 daily flights to the Dominican Republic.
It is recalled that the Civil Aviation Board (JAC) had approved the operation which estimates a supply of 8,056 seats from March 2022 to February 2023.
“Currently these routes are not being operated by any airline. And with their entry into execution towards the country we start the year with good actions for the country’s air connectivity. From the JAC we continue our commitment to continue strengthening air operations in the Dominican Republic,” said the president of the JAC, José Ernesto Marte Piantini, in January of this year.
