In a press release published earlier today[2], America’s largest airline revealed eight additional routes due to begin operation in summer 2020.

The latest round of new routes are exclusively domestic, but a number of overseas destinations were announced earlier in the year.

Discussing the route expansion, American Airlines’ Senior Vice President of Network Strategy, Vasu Raja, said:

“Every year, we evaluate our network and look to create more routes and serve unique destinations whether we’re entering new markets like Casablanca or adding more service to places like Traverse City, Michigan.”
