AA to start Bahamas service from Dallas

For years the word has been out
that “it’s better in the Bahamas.”  Now American Airlines and its regional
partner, American Eagle, are making it easy for travelers to visit this great
resort destination with new nonstop service to Nassau from both New York and
Dallas/Fort Worth.
American will operate seasonal weekend flights to Nassau from both cities
beginning July 3.  American will fly the routes with Boeing Super 80 aircraft,
configured with 14 First-Class seats and 115 seats in the Main Cabin arranged
in American’s exclusive “More Room Throughout Coach” seating that offers
additional legroom between rows.  The service will operate on Saturdays and
Sundays through Sept 5.

  “The Bahamas is a first-class tourist destination and we strive to offer
the best product and flight schedule as well as superior customer service,”
said Peter J. Dolara, American’s senior vice president-Miami, Caribbean and
Latin America.  “We are confident this will have positive results for the
local economy, as we are confident we will continue to receive support from
the government and business communities.”

  In addition, as previously announced, American Eagle will begin daily
seasonal serve to Nassau from Dallas/Fort Worth effective June 10, using new
70-seat CRJ-700 regional jets.  The flight will operate through Sept. 7, and
then begin again on Dec. 15.

  “Expanding air service to the Bahamas is one of our main priorities.
Through American Airlines and American Eagle’s expansion, we can continue to
grow our nation’s most important industry - tourism,” said the Honourable
Obediah Wilchcombe, The Bahamas’ Minister of Tourism.  “We are pleased that
American Airlines and American Eagle continue to grow in our market; their
support helps us flourish.”
