Due to customer demand, American Airlines announces an increase in direct flights from Austin to Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — American Airlines has announced additional direct flights into Cancun. Beginning October, the airline says it will add another four weekly flights to Cancun from Austin, Texas. They say the addition of the flights is due to consumer demand.

American Airlines said they will also increase flights into Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. The flights are due to the high demand to these Mexican destinations. Therefore, as of October 7, they will add four weekly direct flights from Austin, Texas to Cancun.

As of November 2, the airline will add three flights between Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco and Austin.

“Austin is an increasingly important market for both our vacationing and business customers, and we will continue to offer our first-class customer service as the market expands,” said Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer, American.

“Earlier this year, we added more flights from Austin and customers have spoken: they want more,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “We’re eager to offer our customers even more opportunities to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues. Together with our partners, we’re making it easier than ever to connect Austin with the world.”

Central Texans will have four new international options to consider as American adds nonstop service to Cancun, Mexico (CUN), Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR), Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PVR) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ).

In a press release, they said they will also begin year-round nonstop service from AUS to Los Cabos, Mexico (SJD) and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS) following this summer’s successful seasonal service

“For the past 40 years, American Airlines has connected Austin and Central Texas with the world,” said Steve Adler, Mayor of Austin. “We couldn’t be happier with today’s announcement of new and expanded service in AUS. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with American for many more years to come.”
