(posted Nov. 29, 9:38 a.m.) – This morning’s surprise announcement that American Airlines’ parent company, AMR Corporation, has filed for bankruptcy will not affect the U.S. legacy carrier’s flight service to Nicaragua or Latin America, says Juan Gómez, AA’s country representative for Nicaragua.
“It’s business as usual,” Gómez told The Nicaragua Dispatch. “We are just going through a Chapter 11 reorganization to cut the advantages that our competitors have because they already went through the same process between 2002-2004. And now it’s our turn.”
Gómez said the company reorganization will not affect the company’s daily flight schedule to the region.
On the contrary, AA continues to expand its service to Nicaragua. On Nov. 17, the airline added a third daily flight connecting Miami and Managua.
