American Airlines will increase its Miami – São Paulo services to three daily this November and December, ramping up to summer in the Southern Hemisphere and increasing its already significant offering to Brazil.


3x daily to São Paulo

American Airlines has the largest Latin American network of any United States airline, and its hub at Miami International Airport plays a massive role. At the South Florida airport, AA has more than 80 uncontested destinations. While it is not the only airline to offer flights from Miami to São Paulo, it does have the largest market share on the route, and this upcoming winter, the share will grow even larger.

According to Cirium’s recent changes report, American Airlines will increase flights from Miami to Aeroporto Internacional de São Paulo – Guarulhos to three daily from October 27. With the addition of the new flight and Daylight Savings Time starting the week after the increase, flight times will shift slightly and operate on the following schedule:

Last year, American Airlines did offer three daily flights on the MIA-GRU route, but not until December 20, in time for Christmas and New Year. In 2024, AA’s flight and seat offering will be significantly higher than in 2023, with the breakdown below (one-way). As shown in the table, from October to December, AA’s seat offering will increase by more than 28,000 seats (one-way).

AA’s competition

American Airlines faces competition from LATAM Brasil, partner with Delta Air Lines in a joint-venture agreement, which has seen significant expansion of the two airlines’ services from Latin America to the US. Data shows that from October to November, LATAM Brasil will operate two daily flights between Miami and São Paulo, one with its Boeing 787-9s and the other with the 777-300ERs.

Six routes have been announced since the launch of the joint venture, with two already in operation.

Different from AA’s offering, LATAM will operate one flight during the day, departing MIA at 11:15 and touching down in Brazil at 20:35. In the opposite direction, LATAM will leave GRU at 10:35 and arrive in MIA at 17:55. In total, up to 155 flights (one-way) will be offered in one month from October to November, with more than 47,000 seats available.

Other services to South Florida

While no other Brazilian carrier offers service from Miami to São Paulo, two other airlines serve the area. GOL offers flights from a few cities, and Azul Linhas Aéreas flies to nearby Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. From October to December, Azul will fly to FLL from Recife, Belo Horizonte, Belem, Manaus, and its main hub, Campinas. GOL will fly from Brasilia, Brazil’s capital, and Fortaleza, both routes operated by the Boeing 737 MAX 8s.
