American Airlines is bulking up its service to Mexico and Latin America from DFW International Airport, with new routes and additional daily frequencies to 10 international destinations starting next year.
The Fort Worth-based carrier will be adding new service to Durango, Mexico; Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula, Honduras; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in June 2019, the airport announced on Tuesday.
Those flights will be supplemented with additional frequencies to six Mexican cities already served by American Airlines: Guadalajara, Leon, Queretaro, Chihuahua, San Luis Potosi and Puerto Vallarta.
“These new destinations demonstrate the strength of the North Texas market and the power of the American Airlines superhub at DFW,” John Ackerman, the airport’s executive vice president of global strategy and development, said in a statement.
The new flights bring the total number of international destinations served by the airport to 62. It also helps further cement DFW’s role as a link between Asia and Latin America, with the airport connecting more passengers between the two regions than any other in the United States.
In addition to the international flying, American also is launching service from DFW Airport to eight new domestic markets, bringing its total served in the U.S. to 182 destinations. The new domestic markets, which begin operating in March and April of next year, are: Harlingen; Augusta, Ga.; Gainesville, Fla.; Yuma and Flagstaff, Ariz.; and Bakersfield, Monterey and Burbank, Calif.
