American unveils plans to grow long-haul network this summer | News

American Airlines is strengthening its commitment to its Miami hub with the announcement of two new international routes to Tel Aviv (TLV) and Paramaribo, Suriname (PBM), beginning this summer.

The airline is also introducing two new domestic routes from the MIA hub to Little Rock, Arkansas (LIT) and Portland, Maine (PWM).

The US routes will be operating from June 5th through to August 16th.

American will complement recently announced service from New York (JFK) to TLV with flights from MIA to TLV launching in June.

Three times weekly service from MIA to TLV begins June 4th and will operate on a Boeing 777-200.

Flights will operate five times per week
