American Airlines has announced it is adding 14 new routes from Austin beginning this fall, including four new international destinations.

“Earlier this year we added more flights from Austin, and customers have spoken: they want more,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “We're eager to offer our customers even more opportunities to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues. Together with our partners, we’re making it easier than ever to connect Austin with the world.”

“For the past 40 years, American Airlines has connected Austin and Central Texas with the world,” said Steve Adler, Mayor of Austin. “We couldn’t be happier with today’s announcement of new and expanded service in AUS. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with American for many more years to come.”

Ten new domestic nonstops:

American will add three-times daily service to El Paso; twice-daily service to Cincinnati; Indianapolis; Kansas City and St. Louis; and daily service to Jacksonville, Florida; Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Reno, Nevada; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Four new international destinations:

American will add nonstop service to Cancun, Mexico; Liberia, Costa Rica; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The carrier will also begin year-round nonstop service from AUS to Los Cabos, Mexico and Nassau, Bahamas.
