AMERICAN AIRLINES' MIAMI HUB ACHIEVES RECORD GROWTH IN 1992

 MIAMI, Dec. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Although 1992 brought many challenges for the aviation industry, American Airlines' Miami hub forged ahead exceeding projections for growth.
 In 1992, American Airlines began service to new international and domestic destinations, increased service to all Latin American markets, increased employment and set records at Miami International Airport with the number of passengers it carried. Miami is American's largest international hub, with daily, non-stop service to 24 cities in 14 Latin American countries, 17 Caribbean destinations and three in Europe.
 "American Airlines is committed to Miami and continued growth here. As American's operations in Miami increase, so does the infrastructure that supports it -- that equals more jobs and more dollars spent in the community," said Don O'Hare, American Airlines vice president for field services.
 Due to the growth experienced in Miami, American Airlines increased its number of employees in 1992 from 4,700 to 6,800 and emerged as Dade County's third largest employer.
 American added new non-stop service from the Miami hub to the following destinations:
 INTERNATIONAL DOMESTIC
 Paris Vail/Denver
 Providenciales San Diego
 in Turks & Caicos San Jose, Calif.
 St. Maarten Baltimore
 Barbados Washington, Dulles
 Ponce, Puerto Rico Houston International
 Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
 Port of Spain, Trinidad
 American Airlines and American Eagle now serve a total of 81 cities non-stop from Miami.
 American Airlines also increased its number of daily flights from 133 daily departures in January of 1992, to 154 daily flights by Dec. 31, 1992. Combined with American Eagle, American Airlines offers 228 daily departures from the Miami hub.
 By the close of 1992, American will offer more daily departures from Miami to New York and Washington than any other airline:
 New York Washington, D.C.
 10 to La Guardia 8 to National
 5 to JFK 1 to Dulles
 3 to Newark 1 to Baltimore
 18 TOTAL 10 TOTAL
 American Airlines served a record number of passengers in 1992 as well. In July of 1992, American reached a milestone when it carried one million passengers through the Miami hub -- setting a new precedent at Miami International Airport. This achievement will be surpassed by American again this month.
 American Airlines will continue to expand service from Miami throughout 1993. In January, American adds a second daily Heathrow flight, and begins daily service to Cleveland.
