Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez statement regarding American Airlines


As a major private provider of local jobs, American Airlines plays a vital role in the economic development of our community and is an important partner in driving international commerce to South Florida.

While current economic headwinds have forced American Airlines to make some difficult decisions, we believe the restructuring process will give American the flexibility to build and invest in its strongest markets, like Miami, where they've set significant goals for growth.
