American Airlines sees growing travel demand in summer
On April 14, 2021, American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) said it expected to operate more than 90% domestic and 80% of its international seat capacity compared to 2019 amid increased leisure demand for this summer season.
“Throughout the pandemic, our trademark has been to build a schedule based on what customers tell us they want and need,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “And today, they are telling us they’re eager to get back to travel.”
Rising vaccination rates across the US are expected to contribute to more extensive travelling during this summer. American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) said it plans to implement more than 150 new routes this season.
To match the international air travel demand, which according to the airline will be 20% down compared to pre-pandemic levels, American Airlines (A1G) (AAL) will continue offering more destinations to Latin America and the Caribbean. For international operations, the airline will be using wide-body aircraft, namely Boeing 777-200s and Boeing 787-8s.
