American Eagle Adds 109 Weekly Flights from San Juan

American Eagle, the short-haul affiliate of American Airlines, is partnering with Caribbean tourism officials to restore some flights from its San Juan, Puerto Rico hub to other islands in the region -- many of which had been slashed as part of a cost-cutting scheme last fall.

Beginning May 1, American Eagle will increase flight frequencies from San Juan to Tortola, BVI; St. Thomas; St. Croix; Guadeloupe; Martinique; Trinidad & Tobago; and Grenada.

The increases will remain in effect for at least the high season and could be retained year-round.
