American Airlines Opening New Routes to South America

American AirlinesWhile none of its new routes originate at Austin ABIA, American Airlines’ additions may still be interesting to Austin travelers. New South American destinations include Buenos Aires and Cordoba (Argentina), Oaxaca (Mexico), Pereira (Colombia) and Georgetown (Guyana).

Unexpectedly, the frequency of flights by American Airlines to Caracas (Venezuela) is also increasing.

American Airlines has always had a strong position in Latin America, and these changes add to that. A possible tie-in to LATAM (formerly LAN) may be involved. Pizza In Motion and Wandering Aramean report and analyze the new routes.
