AA Flies Nonstop from Miami to Belo Horizonte and Salvador in Brazil

American Airlines Starting in November American Airlines will add three destinations in Brazil to its route network further growing its presence in South America's largest country in an effort to consolidate its leadership position in flights from the United States to Latin America.

American, a founding member of the global Oneworld Alliance, will begin serving the cities of Belo Horizonte (capital of the southeaster state of Minas Gerais), Salvador (capital of Bahia, in the Brazilian Northeast) and Recife (capital of the northeastern state of Pernambuco) on Nov. 2, all from American's Miami hub.

Service from Miami to both Belo Horizonte and Salvador will operate nonstop, with the Salvador de Bahia flight continuing on to Recife and then returning to Miami.  The Belo Horizonte flight will operate three days a week. Service to Salvador de Bahia and Recife will operate daily.

American will fly the routes using widebody Boeing 767-300 aircraft configured with 30 seats in Business Class and 195 seats in the Main Cabin.

Belo Horizonte, is a commercial and industrial center also known for its cultural activities and its general quality of life. Salvador is noted for its cuisine, music and architecture.  Recife boasts a major port, nearby beaches and a vibrant culture and is often called the "Venice of Brazil."

The three new destinations complement American's existing service to Brazil, which includes flights to São Paulo from Miami, Dallas/Fort Worth, and New York JFK, and to Rio de Janeiro from Miami.  American also operates one-stop service to Rio de Janeiro from New York JFK.

"American is excited to offer our customers more of Brazil," said Peter J. Dolara, American's Senior Vice President for Miami, Caribbean and Latin America. "It is a dynamic country in so many ways, and American's comprehensive schedule of service to its leading business, leisure and cultural centers puts it all conveniently and easily within reach."

American's hub in Miami offers travelers connections to Belo Horizonte, Salvador and Recife from dozens of cities throughout North America and Europe. With the addition of the three Brazilian cities to American's network, American will offer customers 27 destinations throughout Latin America – more than any other U.S. airline.

American Airlines is the world's largest airline.  American, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection airlines serve 250 cities in over 40 countries with more than 4,000 daily flights.  The combined network fleet numbers more than 1,000 aircraft.
