American Airlines announced that they will be launching new Caribbean and Hawaii service from Chicago (ORD) and Miami (MIA).

From Chicago O’Hare, the airline will be adding daily winter seasonal service to Honolulu International Airport plus four new routes to the Caribbean including Aruba (AUA), Grand Cayman (GCM), Nassau (NAS), and Turks and Caicos (PLS).

As Miami is currently there Caribbean gateway city, we don’t see any new routes, however they’re adding additional frequencies on several current routes. Barbados (BGI), Curaçao (CUR), Freeport, Bahamas (FPO), Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic (POP), Trinidad and Tobago (POS), Santo Domingo (SDQ), and St. Lucia (UVF) all will see additional frequencies.

Per American Airlines,

American is the first U.S. carrier to serve St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVD) with the introduction of year-round Saturday service from MIA. American’s sun-seeking customers will also have more opportunities to reach their favorite Caribbean destinations, including new flights to Aruba (AUA) from ORD and DFW; to Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (GCM); Nassau, The Bahamas (NAS); and Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (PLS) from ORD. Customers will also gain new access to Eleuthera (ELH) and Marsh Harbour (MHH) in The Bahamas from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). In addition, American will add an extra frequency from MIA to seven Caribbean destinations it currently serves today.

Beginning this winter, American will also introduce new winter seasonal nonstop service to Honolulu (HNL) from ORD on a Boeing 787-8
