American Airlines just announced that starting on March 5, 2015, they will be adding new daily nonstop flights from Miami International Airport to Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Salt Lake City and San Antonio. These new routes from Miami will be operated onboard their Boeing 737-800 aircraft

American also begins new daily service today between Miami and Cap-Haitien, Haiti (CAP), adding a new international destination to the airline’s network. With these new routes, American will serve more than 130 cities from its Miami hub. 

The new route that sticks out to me is Miami-Salt Lake City, as American may be trying to make a move on customers in this Delta hub. It will be interesting to see how popular this service is. Customers will be able to book these new routes starting on October 5, 2014.

What are your thoughts on American’s new routes?
