Cancun, Q.R. — American Airlines will increase flights into Cancun for the upcoming 2023-2024 winter travel season. The announcement came after more than 120 of the airline’s International Division team gathered in Cancun.
The American Airline team were in Cancun for an annual conference which served as an opportunity for leaders to discuss goals for 2024, as well as to give back to the community during a social service event at Fundación Aitana.
“As the leading U.S. airline in Mexico, we are excited to bring together our International Operations leadership team in Cancun to discuss our 2023 achievements as well as our goals for the coming year,” said José A. Freig, Vice President of Operations and Commercial for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America.
“This coming winter, we’re looking forward to adding more service to the destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean that our customers want to visit including popular spots like Cancun, Montego Bay and Punta Cana, as well as our newest destination, Tortola,” he said.
“We are proud to strengthen our lead as the largest U.S. airline in the region with more flights and seats to more destinations than any other single carrier or partnership.”
Starting December 5, American will expand service on 10 routes from Charlotte (CLT) operating through the winter. Customers will have more options to choose from with 40 percent more seats available from CLT to Mexico as the airline increases its Cancun (CUN) route to five daily flights.
The International Division has had a strong 2023, launching new flights to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, operating our longest schedule to date at London Heathrow, and most recently, announcing exciting new destinations for winter 2023 and summer 2024, including Tijuana, Governor’s Harbor, Naples, Copenhagen and Nice,” he added.
This winter, American Airlines plans to operate its largest Cancun schedule to date with up to 40 daily flights to 18 destinations in the U.S. The airline will also launch new nonstop service to Cancun (CUN) from Nashville (BNA) and Cincinnati (CVG).
Starting December 9, American will launch new nonstop service to Cancun (CUN) from Nashville, Tennessee (BNA) and Cincinnati (CVG). Service from BNA and CVG will operate on Saturdays through March.
These new routes will complement the airline’s more than 35 peak-day flights to Cancun, including the most recent announcement of a second daily service from Austin, Texas (AUS), starting November 5.
American also plans to increase service to seven popular destinations in Mexico from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), offering more than 50 daily departures from DFW to Mexico.
During their recent conference, members of the International Division team joined forces to give back to the Cancún community. The group organized a toy drive for the Aitana Foundation, an organization that helps children receiving cancer treatment in Mexico.
“This week, the International Division came together to give back to a community that has been part of American’s history for more than 40 years,” said José María Giraldo, Managing Director for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
“It was incredibly meaningful to see our team members from around the world join our friends at the Aitana Foundation and be able to bring so much joy to children.”
