Supplier of the Week: American Airlines

The United States is open once more and it’s Thanksgiving week, so it’s entirely fitting that our Supplier of the Week is…American Airlines.

Given that US travel is now firmly back, American Airlines is busy returning to full service across its international network.

Here’s just some of what’s going on.

American Airlines B-787 Dreamliner.

American Airlines Partners with VeriFLY

American will begin offering customers a mobile app to make travel to international destinations easier. The mobile wellness wallet solution called VeriFLY, from the identity assurance leader Daon, will help travellers easily understand coronavirus (COVID-19) testing and documentation requirements for their destination and streamline airport check-in through a digital verification to ensure that customers have completed the requirements.

Preflight Testing Program Expands to More Destinations

American Airlines is expanding its current preflight testing program to additional destinations, further opening the world for customers who want to travel.

The airline will now offer preflight testing options to more destinations than any other U.S. carrier. In November, preflight testing will be added for all American flights to Belize, Grenada, St. Lucia and the Hawaiian Islands.

Preflight testing is already available to Bahamas, CARICOM & Costa Rica.

American Airlines Announces Members of the Community Council

American Airlines today announced the founding members of its Community Council. The Council, announced in June, is an important part of the airline’s deepening commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion following this year’s social unrest and the country’s reckoning with race in America. The newly formed Community Council is made up of a number of well-established Black community leaders representing different industries.

Fewer Fees, More Flexibility for AAdvantage Members in 2021

All AAdvantage® members can book an award ticket through all of American Airlines channels without an award service charge.

Members will no longer pay a reinstatement fee to have miles redeposited in their account when they cancel an eligible award ticket.
