American Airlines announced its arrival in Yucatan with the opening of a Mérida-Dallas flight, which will begin on March 3, 2016. In an announcement Tuesday Sept. 29, the Dallas-based carrier said it would begin taking reservations for the new flight on Sunday Oct. 3.
The airline said that the incorporation of Merida will increase its service to Mexico to 21 destinations, and beginning next year American will operate 120 daily flights between Mexico and the United States.
“American was the first international airline flying to Mexico in 1942 and has been one of the leading international companies in the country since then,” the company said. “American is in the midst of more than $2 billion (USD) in planned improvements to give users a top travel experience around the world.”
The company announced that its capital investments include better seating, with wi-fi and power outlets, more flight options, a new design and improved variety of food.
The Mexican Ministry of Tourism Promotion planned to officially announce the flight Wednesday Sept. 30 at the Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport in Merida.
American Airlines reported that in 2015 it has added 100 new aircraft incorporating with what has become one of the youngest fleets in the U.S. network. Together with its regional partners American Eagle and US Airways Express, American operates an average of almost 6,700 flights a day to nearly 350 destinations in over 50 countries.
American’s announcement follows the recent addition of flights on a Rome-Havana-Merida route starting in December through Blue Panorama Airlines, which currently operates the Merida-Milan route.
Also, a few days ago local officials announced that by year-end Merida will have a flight to El Salvador which will provide a connection of one hour and 15 minutes with Central America. Also to begin in December is a Merida-Toronto flight, which was announced a few weeks ago.
This year the city has had a growth of air connectivity that also includes more frequencies to Tabasco to reach Veracruz and the north.
