American Airlines is expanding its Caribbean map under a new codeshare agreement with Silver Airways.

The Oneworld alliance carrier will place its “AA” code on more than 180 flights Silver operates in the Caribbean from its San Juan (SJU) base, the regional carrier said Wednesday. The agreement replaces one American had with Seaborne Airlines, which Silver acquired in 2018.

The codeshare includes flights between San Juan and Dominica, Tortola, St. Thomas and St. Croix. American does not otherwise serve Dominica and Tortola, according to Cirium schedules.

American serves San Juan, which it once considered a hub, from Charlotte (CLT), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Miami (MIA) and Philadelphia (PHL).

Earlier this month, Silver announced a new codeshare agreement with Delta Air Lines covering flights from its San Juan base. The regional airline also codeshares with JetBlue Airways and United Airlines.

Silver operates primarily Saab 340 turboprops but is in the process of replacing them with more modern ATR 42-600 aircraft. The airline introduced its first ATR in April.
