The airline Américas Airlines announced the suspension of several routes, including Samaná in the Dominican Republic, due to alleged low profitability and shortage of personnel.
Doble AA explained that among the routes suppressed for the moment are from Miami to Culiacán, Mexico, Samaná in the Dominican Republic and San Andrés, Colombia; apparently because of pilot shortages, but also due to low demand.
“As a result of weak demand in these markets and the regional pilot shortage affecting the airline industry, American Airlines has made the difficult decision to end service in San Andres, Colombia; Samana, Dominican Republic and Culiacan, Mexico, this spring” the U.S. airline said in a press release.
It clarified, however, that the airline’s staff will proactively keep in touch with customers scheduled to travel to offer alternative arrangements”.
The airline indicated that the route from Miami to San Andres will cease to operate as from May 3; and the demand, apparently, was not enough to maintain an acceptable flow of passengers because after more than a year of opening the route, although at the beginning the number of travelers was acceptable, it was not maintained over time.
