The Government of Dominica is hoping that American Airlines can offer its Miami to Dominica flight on a daily basis.
The new American Airlines non-stop service from Miami landed this afternoon at the Douglas-Charles Airport, with 70 passengers, including Dominica’s Goodwill ambassador Asa Banton and Tourism Minister Denise Charles.
Two flights are currently being offered on AA’s Miami to Dominica itinerary. Charles says come January 10th, another will be added to bring that number of flights to three.
American Airlines Regional Manager for the Eastern Caribbean, Cathy Ann Joseph says Dominica is among two new destinations being launched on its Caribbean itinerary this month – Anguilla being the second.
