American Airlines launched new service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Lima, Peru on Monday.  Lima is the 30th destination that the airline offers in the region covering Mexico and Central and South America from its hub at Dallas/Fort Worth.

American is currently offering AAdvantage members bonus miles when they fly on the new route.  Passengers who purchase business and select economy class seats will receive 20,000 AAdvantage bonus miles for every round trip, while passengers who purchase all other economy class seats will receive 10,000 miles.  To participate, AAdvantage members can register on American’s website using the promotion code AALIM.
