FORT WORTH, TX – American Airlines will add new service to Merida, Mexico – a new destination for its global network – providing more service to the country than any other American carrier. New service will start on March 3, 2016 to Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport (MID) from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

Departure City Arrival City Departure Time Arrival Time Aircraft Type Frequency Flight Number

DFW MID 12:30 p.m. 2:50 p.m. A319 Five times per week 1616
MID DFW 3:50 p.m. 6:20 p.m. A319 Five times per week 1018

Pending regulatory approval, the new route will operate on the above schedule (all times local).

Customers may begin booking flights for this new route this Sunday, Oct. 4.

“The addition of Merida gives our customers 21 destinations in Mexico, and we’ll now operate nearly 120 daily flights between our two countries,” said Art Torno, senior vice president – International and Cargo. “American was the first international airline to fly to Mexico in 1942 and we’ve been one of the leading international carriers in the country ever since.”

American is in the midst of more than $2 billion in planned improvements to give customers a superior travel experience around the world. These capital investments include fully lie-flat seats; international Wi-Fi; more in-flight entertainment options and power outlets; a new, modern design for Admirals Club lounges worldwide; and an upgraded assortment of complimentary healthy food, cocktails and more.

American is taking delivery of more than 100 new aircraft this year, giving it the youngest fleet of any U.S.-based network carrier.

Orders include the Airbus A320 and A320neo family, A350-900s, Boeing 737 MAX, 777-300ERs and 787s, which will make American’s fleet even younger, more modern and fuel efficient.
