AMR subsidiary Executive Airlines will end flight operations on 1 April, as the last of its ATR 72-200s are returned to lessors.

Flights between San Juan and 10 destinations in the Caribbean will end on the same date, says AMR. These include Antigua, Dominica, Fort-de-France, Punta Cana, St. Croix, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, Santiago (Dominican Republic), Santo Domingo and Tortola.

American Airlines will continue to serve all of the cities except Dominica and Tortola from its Miami hub.

From San Juan, British Airways also flies to Antigua; Cape Air to St, Croix, St. Thomas and Tortola; Iberia to Santo Domingo; JetBlue Airways to St. Croix, St. Thomas and Santo Domingo; LIAT to Antigua and Tortola; and Seaborne Airlines to St. Thomas and Tortola, according to Innovata schedules.

No other airlines fly between San Juan and Dominica, Fort-de-France, Punta Cana and Santiago, shows Innovata.

Executive will continue to provide ground services in "various markets", says AMR.

The regional carrier operates nine ATR 72s leased from Nordic Aviation Capital, according to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database. AMR has approval from the US bankruptcy court to return the aircraft to Nordic.

Executive ended flights from Miami on 1 January.
