SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- American Airlines announces the installation of two Self-Service Check-In machines at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport, which becomes the 38th airport where American offers this convenient service. Bright yellow arrows direct customers to the machine locations at each airport.
“Our passengers’ response to Self-Service Check-In has been extremely positive,” said Dan Garton, American’s executive vice president - Marketing. “More than three million people have discovered the convenience of these machines to check in for their flights, select their seats, obtain boarding passes, and even check luggage, all in one quick-and-easy stop. Of course, our excellent Customer Service representatives are also available to assist passengers who desire or need additional assistance.”
Through the end of the year, first-time Self-Service Check-In users will receive 500 AAdvantage® bonus miles when they check in at the machines.
