AMERICAN AIRLINES NEW FLIGHTS TO ANTIGUA
Monday 13th November 2023

Antigua and Barbuda is to benefit from increased service with American Airlines, as the US carrier announces plans to expand their service within the Caribbean for Summer 2024. 

Amongst the list of routes for increased service is Antigua. Starting June 5, 2024, the airline will extend its double daily nonstop service into Antigua with the addition of a second flight from Miami, which will run until September 3, 2024.   

“We are thrilled with this announcement of additional service by American Airlines”, said Antigua and Barbuda Minister of Tourism, The Honourable Charles Fernandez.   

“There has been a growing demand by consumers for flights into Antigua and Barbuda during the summer months. The launch of the second flight comes at the most opportune time, as we work towards boosting airlift into the destination in order to sustain business during the traditional shoulder season”, said the tourism minister. 

The US Market remains a strong market for the destination, with visitor arrivals from the region, reflecting growth for the year as of September 2023.  

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s US Office has completed an unprecedented 38+ cities roadshow this Fall/Winter season alongside resort, cruise, tour operator and airline partners, geared towards marketing the destination and promoting airlift increases. 

CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority Colin C. James noted that “Our US travel trade roadshows and consumer shows this year have been quite successful in generating a desire for travel to our twin-island paradise. We are optimistic that the additional airlift we are set to receive over the summer 2024 will be vital to meeting that demand and ensuring next year’s 2024 arrivals surpass those of bench-mark year 2019.” 

“The extra service with American Airlines will provide us with that added boost, as our consumers will benefit from greater travel options allowing them to connect easily to the destination,” James added.  

The US Carrier has also announced plans to operate a daily service to Antigua from JFK International Airport in New York into Spring 2024.  

Antigua and Barbuda’s strong summer 2023 performance within the US Market has also prompted discussions by the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority with other major US carriers, about increased service for Summer 2024.
