To further assist customers in dealing with the increase in traffic at the
airports this holiday season, Travelocity(R) has partnered with American
Airlines to offer its customers direct access to one of American`s most
popular time saving check-in alternatives—Flight Check-In at AA.com.
For more than a year, any domestic passenger with an American e-ticket
could bypass check-in lines at the airport by going to AA.com to check-in
and print their boarding pass, from anywhere they can find an Internet
connection and printer.
Travelocity is making this check-in alternative even more convenient for
its customers purchasing an American Airlines ticket by providing a direct
link to Flight Check-In at AA.com in Travelocity`s BonVoyage email.
Customers will also receive additional information on using Flight
Check-In at AA.com in the BonVoyage email, along with additional helpful
information on activities and events personalized for customers` specific
travel date and destination. Travelocity customers using Flight Check-In
at AA.com must also be AAdvantage(R) members traveling in the United
States, including Alaska, Hawaii and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“At Travelocity, we`re always looking for ways to help our customers save
time and be more efficient, whether it`s during the travel purchase or
afterwards,” said Tracey Weber, vice president of air for Travelocity.
“We`re excited to work with American to provide direct access to this
simple check-in alternative as customers look for more ways to cut wait
times at the airport.”
With Flight Check-In at AA.com, American e-ticket holders will be able to
check-in online and print their boarding pass between one and 30 hours
prior to their scheduled flight departure. While at AA.com, customers can
change seating assignments and request certain upgrades. When arriving at
the airport, customers can check their bags at American`s Curbside
Check-in units and head directly to the security entrance with their
boarding pass and government-issued photo ID.
