American Airlines is changing its routes to John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The airline has just announced significant changes to New York’s JFK airport, and it will influence passengers looking to fly south. Specifically, flights to Colombia and Mexico will be affected, with the airline canceling some routes and adding others.
Starting Nov. 3, due to “reduced demand,” American Airlines will cancel its relatively new service from JFK to El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá, Colombia, reports The Points Guy. The route was added around mid-2021. American Airlines passengers seeking to reach the Colombian destination from JFK will face a layover; the airline will continue service to Bogotá from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Miami.
While the Bogotá route will soon be excluded, a new service to Mexico is ready to take over. On November 3, the same day that American Airlines Bogotá flights will say goodbye, a new service connecting JFK and Mexico City will be launched. The operation is just a demand-driven switch. As The Points Guy reports, the airline hopes more people will be interested in the Mexico City destination compared to Bogotá. Among the changes, it should also be noted that American Airlines has decided to cancel its route from JFK to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which is a major destination for New Yorkers during the ski season.
