FORT WORTH, TEXAS - American Airlines will adjust its long-haul international schedule for winter 2020 through summer 2021. In an effort to match low demand resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the airline will realign its network with the goal of improving long-term profitability. 

American expects:

  • Summer 2021 long-haul international capacity to be down 25% compared to 2019.
  • To focus on markets that create unique connectivity for customers.
  • To leverage partnerships as the foundation of future international growth.

“COVID-19 has forced us to reevaluate our network,” 

said American’s Chief Revenue Officer Vasu Raja. 

“American will have a significantly smaller international network in the year ahead, but we are using this opportunity to hit reset and create a network using the strength of our strategic hubs that we can build and grow upon and be profitable on in this new environment.”

In response to the prolonged downturn in international travel, American expects summer 2021 long-haul international capacity to be down 25% versus 2019. As the airline begins planning for next summer, American will also discontinue several routes that were once popular leisure destinations but are expected to exhibit decreased demand.
