DFW International Airport Adds Panama, Turks and Caicos Islands To Global Portfolio

New American Airlines service brings DFW’s total international destinations up to 38 cities

(DFW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – Aug. 28, 2007) – DFW International Airport will serve two more international destinations with the addition of American Airlines flights to Panama City, Panama as well as Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. American will fly four times a week from DFW to Panama City, and once a week on Saturdays from DFW to Providenciales, beginning December 13. 

“Panama City is both an important business destination and a growing leisure destination, and Providenciales is an outstanding Caribbean destination,” said Joe Lopano, executive vice president for marketing and terminal management at DFW. “American’s announcement reflects the growing market from DFW to Latin America and the Caribbean, and it shows DFW’s ongoing commitment to bring North Texas passengers a wide range of choices for travel.” 

The additional flights bring DFW’s total number of international destinations to 38. American will service both destinations with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which feature 148 seats and two classes of service. 

“We appreciate the commitment from American Airlines to increase its flight options here at DFW,” said Lopano. “And we hope for further growth to Latin America and the Caribbean in the future.”
