The airline will offer more than 50 daily departures from DFW International Airport to seven destinations:

  • Three flights a week to Acapulco
  • Four flights a week to Huatulco
  • Five daily flights to Monterrey
  • Four daily flights to Puerto Vallarta
  • Five daily flights to Los Cabos
  • Daily service to Zacatecas

The carrier also recently announced a second daily flight from Austin to Cancun beginning on Nov. 5.

As part of a larger seasonal expansion, the airline will offer more than 2,250 weekly flights from the U.S. to 90 destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean. There will be two new routes alongside expanded frequencies on 21 routes.

American Airlines says this will be its largest winter schedule for flights to Latin America, with a 10% increase in seat capacity from last winter.
