AA extends daily flight service to Barbados


Added 08 October 2018


NEW YORK − American Airlines has unveiled the extension of the additional winter capacity from hub cities Charlotte and Miami to Barbados, through its 2019 summer core flight schedule. 

Daily service out of Charlotte will run from December 19 to April 2, 2019 and from June 6 to August 19, 2019. There is Saturday only service from April 3 to June 5, 2019 and November 3 to December 18, 2019. Connecting flights are available August 20 to November 2, 2019.

Thrice daily service will run from Miami from December 19 to April 2 and June 6 to August 19, 2019. Twice daily service will operate at all other times.

This will deliver an increase of almost 50 per cent capacity from April 2 through to August 20 and will assist Barbados in reaching new visitation milestones from the United States.

“We are extremely pleased to see that American Airlines has continued its commitment to growing its capacity to Barbados well into 2019 and continues to help us in surpassing the tremendous visitation figures seen during the past few years,” said Kerrie Symmonds, Minister of Tourism and International Transport. 

“In 2017, Barbados welcomed 188 970 US visitors, and we anticipate surpassing 200 000 visitors from the US in 2018 – improving on last year’s already significant 30-year record. 

“This investment in Barbados is not something that we take lightly as we know that there are several other destinations which are eager for additional lift so we will be immediately implementing a very targeted promotional programme to ensure that we stimulate the demand for this capacity,” Symmonds said.

2019 will usher in a variety of leisure experiences meant to engage the nation-wide spectrum of American Airlines travellers. 2019 will also be known as the Year of Wellness and Soft Adventure, an effort meant to draw attention to the island’s diverse healthy lifestyle experiences.

“This year we’ve continued strengthening our route network out of Barbados, launching additional weekly frequencies to better connect our customers flying between Grantley Adams International Airport and our hubs in Miami and Charlotte. With these new year-round additions that we announced for Barbados, which include an additional daily flight from Miami and our weekly Charlotte flight becoming daily, we will now operate four daily flights to Barbados year-round - our most robust schedule to date,” said Alfredo Gonzalez, Managing Director, Caribbean of American Airlines.
