FORT WORTH (AP) – American Airlines and its American Eagle affiliate will add new flights to San Diego and Mexico this summer.

Fort Worth-based American said Thursday that starting June 12 it will add a single daily flight in each direction between Miami and San Diego using 150-seat Boeing jets.

That’s also when American Eagle will begin flying from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to two new stops in Mexico — daily to Hermosillo and three days per week to Zacatecas — if it gets government approval. Those flights will use 44-seat Embraer planes.

American and Eagle are owned by AMR Corp., which plans to merge with US Airways Group Inc. The merger is awaiting approval from U.S. antitrust regulators, the judge in AMR’s bankruptcy case and shareholders.
