In service


American Airlines is a wholly-owned airline subsidiary of American Airlines Group Incorporated. American Airlines operate an extensive network including domestic and regional services within North America and international services to Europe, Asia Pacific, Central America and South America. The carrier was incorporated from The Aviation Corporation, formed into American Airlines in 1934. The carrier was the founding member of the oneworld Alliance and introduced SABRE in 1959.

Following the merger of AMR Corporation and US Airways Group in 2013, US Airways integrated with American Airlines under a single Air Operators Certificate (AOC). The companies have been using a single booking system and operating as a single brand since 17-Oct-2015. US Airways Group and US Airways ceased to exist as a separate entity effective 30-Dec-2015. As a result of the merger all property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of US Airways became American's, as well as all of US Airways' debts, liabilities and duties.
