FORT WORTH, Texas, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines has launched a new tool called Award Map, giving AAdvantage® members an expanded view into the award tickets they can book online based on the number of miles they wish to redeem. Using a real-time, interactive map of American's network, the tool allows customers to view multiple available destinations at once when searching for award travel.
To use Award Map, members simply enter the number of miles they would like to use, the type of destination they would like to visit based on their interest, region and other search criteria they are accustomed to – including preferred dates, number of travelers and cabin preference. Once the search criteria are entered, Award Map conveniently displays available award tickets on the map.
"Award Map is specifically designed with our customers in mind to help make booking flights with miles easier than ever," said Suzanne Rubin, President – AAdvantage Loyalty Program. "The intuitive layout and simple navigation of Award Map offers customers a robust, easy-to-use tool that makes searching for and booking award tickets much more convenient."
American is committed to technology innovation, and Award Map is a direct product of the American Airlines Development Program for Technology (ADEPT) initiative – a college recruiting program created to develop a technical talent pipeline for Information Technology.
