The Puerto Rico Port Authority and the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) announced that conversations with American Airlines have resulted in the safeguarding of the airline's service from Los Angeles and Baltimore to the island.

"Governor Anibal Acevedo Vila asked us to seek out alternatives that will help the island brave the crisis faced by the airline industry today and these are the results of this effort," said Fernando J. Bonilla, secretary of state and executive director for the Puerto Rico Port Authority in a written release. "We've been able to preserve American Airlines' service from Los Angeles and Baltimore to Puerto Rico, which is a resounding victory for the island."

The PRTC has also been meeting with members of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), who have agreed to work on a joint strategy to guarantee air access to the region.
