American Airlines has unveiled a record schedule offered towards Cancun, Mexico (CUN) as part of a winter schedule.
While the focus centres around the winter schedule, the airline will quickly begin preparing for the upcoming and crucial Summer 2024 season.
Despite this season being many months away, given the forward-thinking nature of the industry, there must be a focus on what the next 12 months hold a long time in advance.
Record Schedule To Be Operated
During this winter, American Airlines says it’ll offer 40 peak-day flights, hoping to provide enough options for connectivity towards warm weather locations.
As part of this, the airline has launched, as of December 9, new nonstop flights to Cancun from Cincinnati (CVG), Nashville, Tennessee (BNA), and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PIT).
The staggering increase will now see 18 nonstop routes across the United States to Cancun to form the record schedule.
More Routes Set To Commence
The major U.S. carrier will also operate six peak-day flights to Cozumel (CZM) and two flights towards Merida (MID).
These gateways offer customers looking to get away during the busy holiday season more options than before.
American Airlines further notes that from March 28, 2024, it will launch four daily nonstop flights to Tulum, Mexico (TQO).
The airline follows several other U.S.-based carriers recently announcing extensive flying towards Tulum, Mexico (TQO).
