American Airlines announces daily flights to Dominica

ROSEAU, Dominica – American Airlines has announced that its recently launched and expanded service to Dominica from Miami International Airport will be expanding again to begin daily service effective April 5, 2022. This service which is scheduled to increase from two times weekly at launch to three times in January will increase frequency to 7 times weekly in April.

Denise Charles, the minister of tourism, international transport and maritime initiatives indicated that “this announcement and commitment to a daily schedule is a testament to American Airlines’ belief in the tourism product of Dominica and the growing demand for the destination’s unique low density, nature immersed, tourism product. Furthermore, the increase in weekly seat capacity aligns with our goal to aggressively increase stay-over visitor arrivals to 200K+ in 5 years.

Dominica, the nature island, in the Caribbean has been making significant strides in recent years to position itself as a major tourism destination in the Caribbean. This increased service will make it easier for travelers from the North American market, particularly on the east coast, to access a unique experience that they would otherwise have to travel to Hawaii to obtain. The service will enable quick getaways to Dominica’s world-renowned nature trails, whale watching, diving, and many health and mineral wellness spas. The service coincides with the expansion and opening of many recent investments in 5 and 6-star eco-luxury resorts on the island. It will also make it easier for patrons from South Florida and the 40+ connecting cities in North America to participate in the many festivals hosted on the island, like our unique carnival, jazz, and Creole festivals.

Colin Piper, chief executive officer/director of tourism stated that the increase in flights will be a major factor in establishing better relationships with US tour operators and travel agents which will result in more business for the hoteliers and service providers in Dominica.

American Airlines operates an Embraer Regional Jet (ERJ) 175 with a capacity for seventy-six (76) passengers with twelve first-class seats and sixty-four premium seats with extra legroom and main cabin seats.
