American Airlines announced it will increase the frequency of its recently launched service between Miami and Dominica starting in April.

The twice weekly Dominica service, which will increase to thrice-weekly in January 2022, is expected to further increase to daily service in April.

Dominica is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea that was first settled in the fifth century.  The island is surrounded by two overseas departments of the French Republic, with Guadeloupe to the northwest and Martinique to the south-southeast.

Although mostly volcanic with relatively few beaches, Dominica is known for ecotourism thanks to its mountains, rainforests, hot springs, waterfalls, and diving spots.  The country has seen an expansion of luxury hotels and resorts in recent years.

American will continue to operate flights to Douglas-Charles Airport using Embraer ERJ 175 aircraft.  The planes feature 12 recliner seats in the first-class cabin.  Each is 19.9” wide with 37” of seat pitch.  There are 20 seats in the aircraft’s premium-economy lite section, each up to 19.3” in width with 34” of seat pitch, and 44 seats in coach with 30 of seat pitch.

The carrier had previously operated flights to the island nation but ended service in 2013, citing high labor costs.
