As of March 5, 2016, passengers from Pittsburgh (PIT), Nashville (BNA), Kansas City (MCI), and Raleigh-Durham (RDU) can enjoy non-stop flights to Cancun.
The carrier will provide the direct flights as a Saturday-only service from each of the four cities. The flight from Kanas City will feature a Boeing 737 while the other three will arrive via Airbus 319. All for flights are scheduled for a 7:00 a.m. departure.
Tickets for the new non-stop flights in March will go on sale in mid-November. The new routes are still facing approval from regulators, however once approved, the flights will land in Cancun for approximately one hour before making the return trip.
Art Torno, Vice President of American Airlines, says, “The addition of these four new routes gives our customers 12 locations to fly non-stop to Cancun.
“As the premier carrier to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America with flights to 85 destinations, these additions highlight our commitment to providing our customers with a network that is second to none.”
Cancun represents one of the most popular vacation hotspots in Mexico, as it signifies a historically leisure-oriented travel destination.
