American Airlines adds more ways to escape to the Cape and coves of New England in 2024

  • American will add seven new routes next summer to coastal destinations in New England and Nova Scotia
  • American will also launch service on two additional international routes next summer
  • Hyannis, Massachusetts, will join the largest global network of any U.S. airline starting next June
  • This year, American has announced more than 45 new routes, growing the most comprehensive route network connecting more unique city pairs than any other U.S. airline

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines is adding seven new routes next summer to give customers more ways to plan trips to hike rugged coastal mountains, watch whales breach in Canadian waters or feel the sea breeze blow in on the shores of Cape Cod. The expansion includes six new cities from New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA), growing American's network from the Big Apple to 75 nonstop destinations.

“American continues to build a network that gives customers the most comprehensive access to the places they want to visit with nine new routes for next summer,” said Brian Znotins, American's Senior Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning. “New service to Hyannis, expanded service from New York, and more international service grows the largest global network in the United States, connecting more cities than any other U.S. carrier, for a summer like no other.”

Flights to Hyannis will be available for purchase starting Oct. 23 on or American’s mobile app. Tickets for other routes will be available for purchase starting Oct. 16 on or American’s mobile app.

New routes to the Northeastern coast

Starting June 5, 2024, American will add service for the first time ever to Hyannis, Massachusetts (HYA), with new daily service from LGA and Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA). American will be the only global network carrier serving the airport, connecting more than 80 destinations across North America with one stop to the gateway to Cape Cod.

In addition, American will also add service to five cities along the Northeastern coast from LGA, including operating the only service from the airport to Halifax, Canada (YHZ).

Connecting coastal New England to the world

American is the only U.S. airline flying to Nova Scotia, providing access to the Bay of Fundy and the iconic Peggy's Cove. For off-the-beaten-path destinations, Nova Scotia is home to Acadian Skies and Mi'kmaq Lands, a starlight reserve offering a glimpse into our universe unlike any other.

American enhances global network for more ways to see the world

American is already offering more ways for customers to plan new summer fun for next year, with two more international routes joining more than 45 new routes announced this year. Starting on June 5, 2024, new service from Charlotte (CLT) to Vancouver, Canada (YVR), will launch for the first time, offering the only nonstop service between North Carolina and British Columbia. Resuming service for the first time since 2019, American will begin nonstop flights between DCA and Bermuda (BDA) on April 4, 2024, adding a fifth gateway on the largest network of any U.S. airline flying to BDA.

For customers looking to add a new stamp in their passport next year, American is gearing up to launch service to new destinations in Europe. In August, American announced new summer 2024 service to Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH); Naples, Italy (NAP); and Nice, France (NCE), providing access to unforgettable memories via gateways to the iconic Nyhavn harbor, the picturesque Amalfi Coast and the glitz of the French Riviera.
