Airline increases service from hubs, adds special flights from Kansas City, Missouri, and San Francisco and San Jose, California

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines, Miami’s hometown airline and the largest carrier serving Miami International Airport (MIA), is adding special flights from Kansas City, Missouri (MCI), and San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC), California, for football fans to cheer on their favorite teams at the big game. American has also added larger aircraft — Boeing 777-200s — from its hubs in New York (JFK), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX) and Chicago (ORD) to accommodate additional traffic to Miami for the game. Flights are available for purchase now.

“We know dedicated fans have watched every pass, play and penalty that got their teams to this moment and what it means to root for them in person,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Senior Vice President of Network Strategy. “We’re looking forward to providing new and increased service to Miami, so more fans can make their dreams a reality.”

American operates more than 340 daily flights to nearly 130 destinations from MIA, and last year connected more than 30 million passengers through the hub. As the airline’s premier gateway into Latin America and the Caribbean, American provides service to more than 70 cities in the region.

“In the coming days, tens of thousands of football fans will be making their way to Miami, many arriving by air through our Miami hub, home to more than 13,000 American team members and to the airline’s largest international gateway,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, American’s Vice President of Miami Hub Operations. “As Miami’s hometown airline for the last three decades, we understand the important role that air service plays in the continued success of our community.”
