American Airlines to Begin San Salvador Service

  American Airlines will begin nonstop service between Los Angeles and San
Salvador, El Salvador, on June 10, adding yet another international
destination to its growing schedule from Los Angeles.
American will initially fly the San Salvador route on a daily basis with
one round trip through the summer travel season, dropping briefly to five
times weekly in the fall, before returning to daily service in time for
the year-end holidays.

American’s service throughout the year will be operated with Boeing 757
aircraft, featuring 22 First-Class seats and 166 Main-Cabin seats. As with
all American Airlines flights throughout its route system, the airline
will offer its customers to San Salvador superior service, great low fares
and the opportunity to earn and redeem AAdvantage(R) frequent-flyer miles.

The new route to San Salvador is the latest international flight to be
added by American in Los Angeles. On April 4, the airline will begin
nonstop service to Tokyo’s Narita Airport with one daily flight. That same
day, it will add a second daily nonstop flight to London’s Heathrow
Airport. On June 10, a second daily flight to Toronto will begin operating.

“American Airlines continues to enhance its schedule in Los Angeles to
provide our customers the wide variety of destinations and frequency of
flights they value,” said Art Pappas, the airline’s managing director in
Los Angeles. “Our customers know that wherever they want to go, American
can get them there.”

Said Margarita Vilanova, American’s country manager in El Salvador: “We’re
very excited to offer this nonstop flight to Los Angeles. It will
complement our existing nonstop service to Miami, and it demonstrates once
again American’s commitment to the important Latin American marketplace.”
