SYRACUSE, N.Y. — American Airlines says it will provide daily service from Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) directly to Miami International Airport (MIA) during Christmas break this year.

American normally offers weekly, seasonal nonstop service SYR to MIA. Its seasonal Saturday-only service will begin this year on Nov. 9 and run through March 29, 2025.

The airline will operate daily flights between Dec. 19 and Jan 6, 2025, on its 76-seat, E-175 aircraft in a two-class configuration to the South Florida hub, per the announcement.

Similar to the seasonal Saturday-only service, the daily flights are scheduled to depart Syracuse at 7:00 a.m. and set to arrive in Miami at 10:42 a.m. Return flights are scheduled to depart Miami at 7:40 p.m. and set to arrive in Syracuse at 10:54 p.m.

“It may be mid-May, but we know now is the time families are looking at Christmas travel,” Jason Terreri, executive director of the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority, said in a statement. “With this new daily service, family getaways to Latin America and the Caribbean will be easier than ever during this peak demand time.”

“American is delighted to announce expanded service between Syracuse Hancock International Airport and Miami International Airport for this winter,” Joe Sottile, director of shorthaul network planning at American Airlines, added in the announcement. “Joining year-round service to six destinations from SYR, American will offer customers access to more than 200 one-stop destinations across our comprehensive global network, now including even more convenient connectivity to American’s extensive service throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.”
