SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
For more information on saving time by checking-in online and receiving
your boarding pass before you arrive at the airport, visit
