American Airlines will end flights between New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) and both Santo Domingo and Santiago in the Dominican Republic from 1 April, after serving the former route for 38 years.

The bankrupt Fort Worth-based carrier began flights between JFK and Santo Domingo in 1975 and to Santiago in 2002, it says.

American will continue to serve Santo Domingo four-times daily and Santiago once daily from its Miami hub.

New York-based low-cost carrier JetBlue Airways began flights between JFK and Santo Domingo in May 2007 and Santiago in June 2004. It now has up to five flights per day to Santo Domingo and six per day to Santiago, according to Innovata schedules.

Delta Air Lines also flies between JFK and both Santo Domingo and Santiago, according to Innovata.
