American Airlines

Founded in 1930, American Airlines was the result of the consolidation of more than 80 small airlines into The Aviation Corporation.

American Airways, Inc. officially became American Airlines, Inc. in 1934 and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on June 10, 1939. Originally headquartered in New York City, where it continues to maintain a strong presence, American moved its headquarters to Fort Worth, Texas, in 1979 and has since become one of the largest airlines in the world, contributing nearly $100 billion to the United States and international economies. It has helped create more than 900,000 jobs worldwide, and supported approximately 1,400 non-profit organizations worldwide. American and its regional airline affiliates, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection airlines, serve approximately 250 cities in over 40 countries with, on average, 3,400 daily flights. American’s network covers points throughout North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and the Pacific. American has five major cornerstone markets:  New York, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago O’Hare, and Miami where it’s network resources are concentrated and which connect some of the largest U.S. population centers for business travelers and are international gateway cities.  American’s “Transcon” services between cities on the U.S. East and West Coasts have long been important non-hub flights.

As a global airline, the mission of American Airlines is to promote commerce, trade and economic prosperity, as well as a sense of global community and citizenship. In 2009, about 38.8% of American’s flying was international – Latin American and the Caribbean, 18.7%; Europe, 15.6%; and Pacific, 4.5%. The combined network fleet numbers almost 900 aircraft. American and American Eagle have nearly 88,500 full-time and part-time employees worldwide. On an average day, American Airlines alone will: fly about 275,000 passengers, receive more than 239,000 reservations calls, and handle more than 300,000 pieces of luggage. Currently, they estimate that more than 107 million people fly American each year.
