American Airlines Introduces Direct Service Between Miami and Jackson Hole 

Miamians who love to hit some of the most scenic slopes in the country have long pined for Jackson Hole, but the jagged grandeur of the Tetons and the charm of the town of Jackson were not exactly accessible, with no direct flights linking the Florida and Wyoming destinations.  

Now the two resort destinations are finally connected, with American Airlines launching new seasonal service from Miami to Jackson Hole this winter, operating with Airbus A319 aircraft. Flights between Miami and Jackson Hole will debut Dec. 15 and will operate seasonally through April 3. Nonstop service will operate daily from Dec. 15 through Jan. 9, weekly during the typically slower weeks from Jan. 10 through Feb. 15, and then daily again from Feb. 16 through April 3. 

“American is eager to connect Jackson Hole Airport with Miami this winter, offering up to six daily flights from Jackson Hole,” says Philippe Puech, director of short-haul network planning at American Airlines. The new Miami route joins a robust lineup of flights from 14 markets directly to Jackson Hole this winter: Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Denver, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, LaGuardia, Newark, Atlanta and Miami. Residents of those affluent cities historically have been drawn to the area’s luxury properties, such as Amangani and the Four Seasons Resort and Residences; now the new mountain-modern-style Cloudveil, an Autograph Collection hotel on Jackson’s Town Square, joins them. 

“We have valued American Airlines service since 1987 with the arrival of the inaugural nonstop flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to the Jackson Hole Airport,” says JH Air board chair Mike Gierau. “American’s commitment to Jackson has expanded to year-round service, with flights from multiple hubs connecting Jackson both nationally and internationally for locals and visitors alike. We look forward to welcoming Miami service to the home of Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks and world-renowned ski resorts, including Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee and Snow King.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
