American Airlines and Emirates Airline have launched interline electronic ticketing (IET), bringing the number of domestic and international airlines providing IET in cooperation with American to 30, and with Emirates to five. Customers can use a single electronic ticket (e-ticket) when their itineraries include travel on American and Emirates.
Interline e-tickets can be issued by American and Emirates through their respective reservation centers, at airport locations, ticket offices and travel agencies.
American Airlines offers interline e-ticketing convenience with many U.S. airlines and all seven of its oneworld Alliance partners - Aer Lingus, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, LAN AIRLINES and Qantas. In addition, American has interline e-ticketing agreements with AeroMexico, Copa Airlines, Jalways, Japan Airlines, Japan Asia Airways, KLM, LANPERU, Mexicana Airlines and SN Brussels Airlines.
Besides American, Emirates offers interline e-ticketing with United, Continental, Delta and British Airways.
Nearly 95 percent of all American Airlines customers today travel on electronic tickets, moving quickly and easily through busy airports. E-tickets are the key to using American’s growing array of automated services, including the Flight Check-Insm feature on AA.com, AA Curbside Check-In and the more than 700 AA Self-Service Check-Insm machines provided at more than 85 airports. E-tickets cannot be lost or stolen and they make changes and refunds easier. IET enables easier transfer between carriers should a change of airline be necessary due to weather or other delays.
