MIAMI — International service at Miami International Airport will expand in the fourth quarter of 2014, as American Airlines, Lufthansa, and Finnair launch new service. SWISS, Qatar, Air France, Lufthansa, and Virgin Atlantic will augment their service for the winter season.

American will begin service to Cap-Haiten, Haiti, on October 2, it’s second Haitian destination after Port-au-Prince, which it also serves from Miami. Campinas, Brazil (VCF), will also see new service from American beginning December 2, one day after the carrier launches service to Campinas from New York (JFK). Miami-London service for the winter season will also increase to 17 roundtrips weekly, with three flights per day on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. American will continue to fly the 777-300ER once daily between Miami and London, but will up-gauge all of its Miami-São Paulo flights to the 777-300ER variant, effective December 1.
