American Airlines recently announced new flights to Los Cabos this winter. The airline is hoping to take advantage of the peak season in Los Cabos, which typically includes a very busy month of December that bleeds into January and the first months of the year.

American’s hub in Charlotte, North Carolina will be getting 40% more seats to fly to Mexico this winter season.

With Los Cabos being one of the destinations that will see the biggest increase in the number of flights. Starting December 5th, the airline will fly 10 weekly routes between Los Cabos and Charlotte.

That increase is going to now mean that Charlotte residents and those connecting through Charlotte will be able to fly to Cabo any day of the week.

The Dallas/ Fort Worth airport, which is the most notable American Airlines hub, will also see more flights to Cabo over the winter.

Only in this case the increase in the number of flights from Dallas to Cabo will start on December 9th. Just like with Charlotte, residents of the DFW area and beyond are going to be able to fly to Cabo from this local airport any day of the week during the busiest time of the year for the Cabo region.

How Much Will Traveling To Cabo In The Peak Season Cost?

December is typically the month when hotels in Cabo charge the most expensive per-night rates of the year.

Saving some money on the flight to Cabo could be a good way to keep your vacation to the area within your budget. With the increase in the number of flights and since we’re still about 6 months out from when these flights are set to take place, it could be the perfect time to purchase a ticket.

Flights from Charlotte to Cabo staying in the Mexican Pacific for about a week through New Year’s Day are currently going for 1,253 dollars per person for a round-trip non-stop flight.

That may not sound like the most cost-effective deal on the market. But actually, when it comes to direct flights, it’s the best deal that’s currently available from Charlotte.

Sometimes travelers are able to save money by booking a flight with a stop, but it isn’t always worth the hassle. In this case, there’s a one-stop flight that could save you about 300 dollars. However, that flight has a 9-hour layover in Austin or Dallas.

Speaking of Dallas, American Airlines also runs the most cost-effective route during the busiest time of the winter peak season. Leaving DFW on December 23 and heading back on January 2nd will set travelers back at least 980 dollars on a direct flight.

As you move away from the busiest time of the year, seats on these routes can get exponentially cheaper.

Valentine’s Day In Cabo Could See Low-Cost Flights          

While travelers are probably not going to see a massive drop in air fares through the busiest days of the peak season, there’s another holiday where they could fly to Cabo and find good deals.

The DFW flight to Cabo gets less expensive as we move into February. A 10-day Cabo trip with direct flights from DFW and back can start at a bit under 300 dollars.

This will allow travelers to spend Valentine’s Day night at their favorite Cabo resort.

The Charlotte flights also drop in price during those dates, with a Cabo trip from Charlotte setting you back only a bit over 400 dollars.

American Airlines has not yet mentioned whether this expansion in the number of flights to Cabo is just something that they’re going to be doing seasonally.

What’s certain is that for those busy dates, residents of both Charlotte and Dallas are going to be able to catch a flight to Cabo any day of the week.

At this point in time, American Airlines is offering the best deals on flights to Cabo from both cities, especially if you’re looking for a direct flight.
