American Eagle starts Cozumal flights

American Eagle will add nonstop service between Miami International Airport and Cozumel International Airport, beginning March 2, 2007. American Eagle will operate one daily round trip between the two cities, using its 64-seat ATR72 turbo-prop aircraft.

Cozumel is American Eagle’s eighth destination in Mexico.

“American and American Eagle are committed to making Miami the premier connecting hub for Latin America,” said Peter Dolara, American Airlines Senior Vice President - Miami, Caribbean and Latin America. “Eagle’s first direct route from Miami to Mexico supplements our extensive network throughout the Bahamas, the Caribbean, South and Central America.”

“American Eagle is thrilled to offer this new route, connecting our Miami hub to one of Mexico’s premier tourist destinations,” said Ed Criner, President of Executive Airlines, which flies as American Eagle in the Caribbean, Florida and the Bahamas. ” This new service will launch in time for spring break vacationers to enjoy Cozumel’s wonderful beaches and outdoor activities.”
