American Airlines Restructures Pricing at Miami

American Airlines today unveiled
a new simplified domestic fare structure for South Florida. As a result,
domestic fares to and from Miami International Airport (MIA) are now
simpler and more competitive than ever for travel on American Airlines,
American Eagle and AmericanConnection. With American’s new pricing structure at Miami, everyday domestic fares
are much simpler, with fewer coach fare levels in each market. American
has also eliminated many fare restrictions, including all Saturday night
stay requirements. In addition, tickets for nonstop itineraries to and
from Miami are available for one-way purchase.

“This fundamental restructuring of domestic fares for American Airlines
and American Eagle in Miami further strengthens our competitive position
in South Florida. We have eliminated Saturday night stay requirements and
other significant restrictions to give our customers easier access to
great fares and all the conveniences of Miami International Airport,” said
Peter J. Dolara, American’s Senior Vice President-Miami, Caribbean, and
Latin America. “This change is a winning proposition for customers in
Miami looking for convenience and value and is vital to the prosperity of
our community, which requires an airport that can compete with other

Fares for last-minute domestic travel have been dramatically reduced,
particularly in Miami, where one-way coach “walk-up” fares are discounted
up to 85 percent off previous walk-up fare levels not requiring a minimum
stay. The highest one-way full coach fares are set at $499, $599, or $699,
depending on mileage—most fares are much lower. In addition, American
offers a range of advance-purchase fares, each without a minimum-stay
requirement. Change fees from all three South Florida airports have also
been set at a standard $50, down from $100 in some cases, making it easier
for customers to adjust their travel plans when the need arises.

Along with fare changes in Miami, American’s fares for Fort Lauderdale and
West Palm Beach airports have been similarly restructured to give
travelers throughout South Florida more access to more great fares with
fewer restrictions. More information is available online at .

Dolara added that this bold fare-simplification initiative is the latest
sign of American’s commitment to working with local community leaders to
boost Miami’s popularity and ensure its success as the hub of the Americas.


American’s simpler, competitive fares, combined with strengths that only a
global airline can offer—including an extensive network, extensive
flight schedule, the AAdvantage(R) travel rewards program and oneworld
Alliance—makes American Airlines the best value for travel to and from
South Florida. From Miami, American and American Eagle offer 128 daily
flights to 38 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.

“Whether you’re booking your ticket at the last minute, or planning a trip
well in advance, you need look no further than American Airlines in Miami
to find a great deal,” said Dolara.
