American Airlines to Offer Nonstop Service Kansas City to Cancun, Mexico

American Airlines will offer new access to Cancun, Mexico - one of Mexico’s most popular destinations - when it adds new service from four U.S. cities in 2016. The new seasonal service to Cancun International Airport (CUN) will operate on Saturdays from Kansas City International Airport (MCI), Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), and Nashville International Airport (BNA). The airline expects that customers may begin booking flights for these new routes in mid-November once governmental approvals have been obtained, and service will start on March 5, 2016.

“The addition of these four new routes gives our customers 12 locations to fly non-stop to Cancun,” said Art Torno, senior vice president – International and Cargo. “As the premier carrier to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America with flights to 85 destinations, these additions highlight our commitment to providing our customers with a network that is second to none.”
