American Airlines recently disbanded its partnership — and with it the so-called Northeast Alliance — with JetBlue, and since that time, the carrier has begun to add back service to various airports across the Northeast that it relied on JetBlue to serve.
The Dallas-based carrier has just announced a new round of service additions across the region, and it looks like AA’s going to be making a big comeback in the area come next summer.
Here’s everything you need to know.

There are some interesting facts to point out with some of these routes:
- American will become the only true global carrier to serve Hyannis (which is the access point for Cape Cod). JetBlue and Cape Air also offer flights to the airport, but American will become the only carrier with the ability to connect passengers from Hyannis to all corners of the globe including Australia, Asia, South America, and more.
- American Airlines is — and will remain — the only U.S. carrier to service Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada.
In addition to these relatively local routes to New England and coastal Canada, American will also be launching daily service from Charlotte (CLT) to Vancouver, Canada (YVR) on June 5, 2024, and from Washington, D.C. (DCA) to Bermuda (BDA) on April 4, 2024. The Bermuda route was cut at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and is making its reappearance, but the Vancouver route is a brand-new add for the airline.Hot Tip:
All routes will go on sale on October 16, 2024, with the exception of the Hyannis routes which will begin sales on October 23, 2024.
Because JetBlue can no longer carry American Airlines customers, the airline needs to rebuild its route network in a big way — these new routes throughout New England and Canada are a step in that direction. You can look for these new flights to begin throughout the spring and summer of next year.
