American Airlines announced they’ll be launching several new domestic and international routes in 2019. A large majority of these new routes are due to a lease agreement they’ve reached at Dallas Ft. Worth with the airport resulting in 15 new regional gates after renovating the Terminal E satellite gates.

In addition to the added regional flying from Dallas, we’re seeing new service to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America, as they add service to Antonio Maceo Airport (SCU) in Santiago de Cuba from Miami. Dallas sees new service to Durango International Airport (DGO) in Mexico starting June 6, which is another new American city.

Additionally, new international service from New York (LGA) to Aruba starts on June 8, 2019 just in time for the busy summer travel season. Santo Domingo (SDQ) sees added service from both  Dallas Ft. Worth and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) this summer.

  1. You can now shoot a cannon through Terminal 4 at JFK in the middle of the day, and you wouldn’t hit anybody (as long as you avoid the CX departures which seem to form most of the action there these days). Other than the LAX/SFO flights, the place is an eerily quiet ghost town . . . they built one of the biggest terminals in the country’s biggest city with the biggest economy in the hemisphere, and AA can’t seem to find a way to utilize it for most of the day. Bizarre.

  2. DFW-YUM seems like an odd choice being that Yuma isn’t that far from the PHX hub. There must be some industry business route reason for this I would have to guess.

  3. I just checked on for BUR-DFW flights for 02-April-19 and beyond. So far, no inventory has been loaded.
