The airline that currently serves up the most flight patterns throughout several locations south of the border plans to increase travelers’ options considerably. American Airlines will be rolling out new domestic and international flights from several busy hubs in 2019.
AA has hubs in Chicago; Dallas/Fort Worth; Charlotte, North Carolina; Los Angeles; Miami; New York; Philadelphia; Phoenix and Washington, D.C.
Domestic routes from Dallas/Fort Worth
The airline’s largest hub, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), will be extending services with 15 new regional gates throughout the upcoming summer. On March 3, 2019, this expansion will provide a new service to Valley International Airport (HRL) in Harlingen, Texas, as well as new, additional domestic routes from DFW.
Part of the airline’s plan, the new routes will increase DFW’s daily operations from about 800 departures to nearly 900 departures by the summer of 2019.
March 3, 2019 will mark the beginning of new daily, year-round service for:
