PHOENIX - American Airlines now offers Self-ServiceSM Check-In at 30 domestic airports, with the recent installation in Terminal 3 at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The easy-to-use machines allow passengers flying domestically with an electronic ticket to check in for their flight, select a seat, check their luggage and obtain a boarding pass.
“More than 3 million passengers have used Self-Service Check-In to date,” said Dan Garton, American`s Executive Vice President - Customer Service. “We are extremely pleased with the customer response to our product and are continuing to install additional machines in many more cities this year. Self-Service is one of many airport automation products American has deployed that, in tandem with our dedicated Customer Services employees, help streamline our customers’ airport experience.”
