American Airlines to Inaugurate Direct Service to Los Cabos from Three Key Gateways
Major carrier boosts its commitment to Mexico’s finest vacation destination
LOS CABOS, Mexico, October 5, 2020 – American Airlines is adding new non-stop service between New York’s JFK International Airport (JFK) and Los Cabos (SJD) beginning in December. Flights will operate five times per week through March and will operate daily during the peak weeks between Dec. 17 and Jan. 5, 2021.
In addition, the carrier is adding direct service on Saturdays from Austin, Texas (AUS) to SJD; and direct service on Saturdays from Sacramento, California (SMF) during the peak winter season (Dec. 19 – Jan. 2, 2021) and again on Saturdays from March 6 through April 3. Both cities are prominent state capitals with sizable urban and metropolitan populations.
“With Los Cabos being the fastest growing destination in Mexico, it’s our priority to continue to expand accessibility for travelers across the United States from east to west,” said Rodrigo Esponda, Managing Director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board. “We are pleased to work with American Airlines on the three new direct routes to Los Cabos from New York, Sacramento and Austin. We can’t wait to welcome many more first-time visitors to experience our world-class destination.”
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, American, together with its regional partners, operates an extensive international and domestic network. DFW, its largest hub, serves as American’s primary gateway to Mexico. In December, American will fly to 23 destinations in Mexico from DFW. The airline will increase service to SJD from DFW with up to five daily flights on a Boeing 737 between December and April. American also intends to operate daily service from their large hub on the east coast, Charlotte (CLT), with daily service during the winter season.
American continues its expansion in Mexico and recently announced the launch of two new destinations in the country–La Paz and Loreto. Both destinations will connect to the airline’s hubs in DFW and Phoenix (PHX).
“We are thrilled about our two new destinations in Mexico, La Paz and Loreto, as well as continuing to grow our seasonal service to popular destinations such as Los Cabos, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta,” said Jose María Giraldo, Director Regional of American in Mexico, Central America, Colombia and Ecuador. “This growth shows our airline’s firm commitment to Mexico, where we have continued to operate uninterrupted service for almost 80 years.”
