Chetumal, Q.R. — The direct Miami to Chetumal flight offered by American Airlines is scheduled for cancellation. The test route, which began in December of 2021, is being canceled due to a lack of interest.
The airline says the last flight will be offered August 13 after which time, they will stop offering the direct flight. American Airlines says that after an eight month trial, the Miami route into Chetumal International has not proven profitable due to low user demand.
Alejandra Carrasco Rendón, V.P. of the Mexico City Chamber of Commerce (Canaco), confirmed the airline’s route cancellation for August. She said initially, the airline was only going to suspend the route for two months, but after reconsideration, they decided it was not a profitable route.
