On Thursday (June 1, 2023), Miami International Airport (MIA) announced the launch of American Airlines’ new service between MIA and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. The start of the Miami-Tortola route was marked with a ribbon cutting service today with officials from MIA, the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, and American Airlines. With the departure of American Airlines flight 3989, Miami became the only U.S. airport to offer direct service to the British Virgin Islands for the first time in four decades. The three-hour service eliminates the need for connecting flights and will operate throughout the summer, before recommencing in November. Tortola is now MIA’s 43rd nonstop route to the Caribbean, reinforcing the airport as the leading U.S, gateway for service to Latin America and the Caribbean.

American Airlines’ purpose is to “Care for People on Life’s Journey.” Shares in the American Airlines Group, Inc., trade on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol AAL and the company’s stock is included in the S&P 500.
