American Airlines has announced a new route from Miami to the Caribbean, but travelers may find more than the “iconic clear blue water and pink sand” promised by the airline when they arrive.
“As Miami’s Hometown Airline, American is proud to provide our customers with an unparalleled network that includes destinations like Governor’s Harbour, with its iconic clear blue water and pink sand beaches,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, American’s Vice President of MIA Hub Operations.
He added: “We are proud to serve as the gateway to the Caribbean and Latin America, and today we are thrilled to provide our customers access to another beautiful vacation getaway.”
But passengers boarding the flight to the beautiful holiday destination may not have gathered from the airline’s announcement that US citizens have been warned away from certain parts of the islands due to an explosion of gang violence.
On January 24, the U.S. Embassy in the Bahamas issued a Level 2 travel advisory to Americans, suggesting tourists “exercise extreme caution” in some areas of the Bahamas.
