American is adding a batch of routes from New York’s LaGuardia Airport starting in November 2024. The flights are scheduled to be operated by mainline aircraft.

Data from aviation analytics company Cirium shows the carrier adding service between LaGuardia and New Orleans, Orlando, and Palm Beach. New Orleans is a completely new route for post-merger American while Orlando and Palm Beach have been served in the past.

LaGuardia to New Orleans

Service to New Orleans is slated to begin on Nov. 5, 2024. Flights will operate daily on an Airbus A320.

American has yet to serve the New York-New Orleans market from either JFK or LaGuardia since 2008. The airline will compete directly with Delta, which serves the market from both airports. Southwest also serves New Orleans from LaGuardia.

In addition, JetBlue flies the route from both JFK and LaGuardia, however, service to the latter ends in late October as part of recently announced route cuts.

LaGuardia to Orlando

The airline will also add more flights in Orlando. Starting on Nov. 5, 2024, American plans to add twice-daily service from LaGuardia to Orlando on a Boeing 737-800.

This market is widely served by Delta, Southwest, Frontier, Spirit, and JetBlue. American will offer a 7 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. outbound departures on the route.

American last flew regular service between the two cities in November 2021.

LaGuardia to Palm Beach

Lastly, American plans to add service from LaGuardia to Palm Beach. Similar to the Orlando route, flights will be operated twice-daily on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft starting on November 5.

Delta, JetBlue, and Spirit also serve the market. American previously served LaGuardia-Palm Beach on a regular basis in March 2020.
