American Airlines said Monday that it’s adding two new weekly routes from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, both to vacation destinations.

The flights – to Georgetown, Bahamas and Bangor, Maine – will both operate on Saturdays, flown by subsidiary PSA on a CRJ-700 regional jet. Here are the details:

▪ Charlotte to Georgetown: Starting June 3, the flight will depart on Saturdays at 9:20 a.m. and arrive at about 11:40 a.m. The return flight will leave Georgetown at 12:20 p.m. and land in Charlotte at about 2:34 p.m. The flight will be suspended between Aug. 20 and Oct. 6, which is the peak hurricane season.

▪ Charlotte to Bangor: This season route will run June 3 to Aug. 19. Flights will depart at 9:30 a.m. and arrive at 12:10 p.m. in Bangor, with a return flight leaving Bangor at 12:45 p.m. and arriving in Charlotte at 3:35 p.m.

American Airlines flight 801 flies through a water cannon salute prior to takeoff for Cuba. It is the inaugural flight for what will be daily service between Charlotte and Havana.
