Following Delta’s partnership with LATAM, American Airlines was quick to announce its South America expansion plans. The airline will be increasing service from Miami (MIA) to Lima, Peru (LIM), Santiago, Chile (SCL), and São Paulo(GRU).

Additionally, American Airlines goes after Delta in Boston with the announcement of daily Boston (BOS) to London Heathrow (LHR) beginning March 29.

Per American Airlines,

Whether across the pond or across the equator, American Airlines continues to strengthen its network to give customers more travel options than ever before. Today American announced plans to grow its international network with new and increased service:

  • Increased service from Miami (MIA) to:
    • Lima, Peru (LIM), beginning April 7
    • Santiago, Chile (SCL), beginning winter 2020
    • São Paulo(GRU), beginning winter 2020
  • New daily service from Boston (BOS) to London Heathrow (LHR) beginning March 29
  • Extended service to key European destinations including Rome (FCO), Dublin (DUB) and Barcelona, Spain (BCN)

All new routes are subject to government approval. Flights will be available for purchase Oct. 7, with the exception of GRU and SCL, which will be available for purchase in December.

American currently operates two daily flights to LIM from MIA, and next spring the airline will increase operations year-round to three times a day on a Boeing 757, providing more service than any other carrier to one of South America’s largest cities. And next winter gets even warmer with an additional flight to Chile’s capital, Santiago, and a third flight to Brazil’s largest city, São Paulo. Both services will be operated on a 777-200.
