American Airlines announced that two destinations in the Caribbean would return to the airline’s route map, Dominica and Anguilla.

The Fort Worth-based carrier will launch twice-weekly service from Miami International Airport to Douglas-Charles Airport in Dominica on December 8.  It will then introduce twice-weekly service to Anguilla’s Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport on December 11.

American will operate both routes on Wednesdays and Saturdays using Embraer E175 jets.  The airline’s E175 aircraft feature 12 first-class seats in a 1-2 configuration. Each seat is 19.9” wide and has 37” of seat pitch. The jet has 64 seats in coach including 20 Main Cabin Extra seats.

American last served the destinations with service from San Juan when Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport was a regional hub for the carrier.  Service to Dominica ended in 2013 and service to Anguilla stopped in 2011.

Dominica, nicknamed the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean” for its natural environment, is an attractive ecotourism destination, with its mountains, rainforests, freshwater lakes, hot springs, waterfalls, and excellent diving spots.

Anguilla, a British overseas territory, offers visitors pristine white sand beaches that range from long sandy stretches such as those found on Rendezvous Bay, overlooking neighboring Saint Martin island, as well as secluded coves reached by boat, and a cuisine that incorporates native Caribbean, African, Spanish, French, and English elements.
