FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines today announced they now offer interline electronic ticketing. Customers can use a single electronic ticket (e-ticket) when their itineraries include travel on both carriers.
With the addition of Hawaiian, today American offers interline e-ticketing convenience with seven domestic carriers, including most of the major U.S. airlines - Alaska Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways. In addition, last year American was first to offer interline e-ticketing with a foreign airline—oneworld alliance member Finnair.
Passengers with e-tickets also have the ability to rebook between American and Hawaiian without having to obtain a paper ticket first. Previously, customers with e-tickets were required to convert to a paper ticket before transferring between carriers. Interline e-tickets can be issued by American and Hawaiian through their respective reservation centers and at airport locations and ticket offices.
A great majority of American’s customers today travel on e-tickets, avoiding lines at the airport. e-tickets are the key to using American’s growing array of automated services, including online check-in with AA.com, plus nearly 700 Self-Service Check-in devices at 84 airports and approximately 300
Curbside Check-In devices in more than 80 airports. e-tickets cannot be lost or stolen and they make changes and refunds easier. Interline e-ticketing also enables easier transfer between carriers should a change of airline be necessary due to weather or other delays.
