American Airlines announced on Monday plans to launch multiple new international flights including service from Miami to Tel Aviv and to Paramaribo, Suriname.

The Miami-Tel Aviv service will be American’s third route to Israel after flights from Dallas and newly announced service from New York.

The Fort Worth-based carrier discontinued service to Tel Aviv in 2016, although that route was from Philadelphia, and had been inherited from US Airways in the merger.

American will operate the Miami-Tel Aviv flights using Boeing 777-200 aircraft.  American’s 777-200s have 37 seats in the Flagship Business business-class cabin.  Each seat has a width of 21” and extends into a 77” bed.  The aircraft also has 24 recliner seats in the premium-economy cabin, which are 19” wide and have 38” of seat pitch. There are 66 seats in the Main Cabin Extra premium-economy lite section and 146 in coach.

In addition to the new Tel Aviv service, the Fort Worth-based carrier said it plans to add service from Miami to Paramaribo, Suriname, from Charlotte to Samaná in the Dominican Republic, and from Los Angeles to Cancun, Mexico.

American also said it would add new service linking Dallas with Sint Maarten, Saint Lucia, and Mérida.

The new service to Paramaribo will operate five times per week.  Paramaribois the capital and largest city in Suriname, located on the banks of theSurinameRiver. The city enjoys a tropical rainforest climate and is known for its historic inner city, a Dutch town that was established in the 17th century.
