American Airlines Group

Parent company of American Airlines


At American Airlines, our purpose is to care for people on life’s journey. Together with our American Eagle regional partners, we offer thousands of flights daily to more than 350 destinations in more than 60 countries. American has hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.


American was founded more than 95 years ago and has a deep-rooted history leading the industry through innovation and firsts, including hiring the first Black U.S. commercial airline pilot, hiring the first female U.S. commercial airline pilot, launching the first loyalty program of any major carrier and becoming the first airline to introduce airport lounges. In 2016, American Airlines Group Inc. topped Fortune magazine’s list of best business turnarounds, and its stock (NASDAQ: AAL) joined the S&P 500 index.
