American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) will continue short-haul international flying, which includes flights to the Caribbean, flights to SVG will remain as scheduled.
The Airline, however, said it will implement a phased suspension of additional long-haul international flights from the U.S. starting on March 16.
This suspension will last through May 6. This change is in response to decreased demand and changes to U.S. government travel restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19). The airline will:
- Reduce international capacity by 75% year over year — from March 16 to May 6
- Continue to operate one flight daily from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to London (LHR), one flight daily from Miami (MIA) to LHR and three flights per week from DFW to Tokyo (NRT)
In addition to the international changes, the airline anticipates its domestic capacity in April will be reduced by 20% compared to last year and May’s domestic capacity will be reduced by 30% on a year over year basis.
