American Airlines and Uber have partnered to provide a door-to-door service for their customers.  

“We’re excited to partner with the only global ride sharing service to offer customers exactly what they’re asking for - a seamless travel experience, whether they’re in the sky or on the ground,” said Scott Hinshaw, American’s director – Partner Marketing. “By working together, we can provide a service that allows customers to request their Uber ride to the airport in step with their itinerary and know where to meet their Uber driver after their flight lands.” 

Customers can set a reminder for an Uber ride after booking their flights using the “Remind me to Uber” icon.  The American Airlines app now has added functionality for navigation to guide customers to the nearest Uber pick up location at 11 airports across the country.

  • Charlotte Douglas International (CLT)
  • Chicago O’Hare International (ORD)
  • Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW)
  • Los Angeles International (LAX)
  • New York’s John F. Kennedy International (JFK)
  • New York’s LaGuardia (LGA)
  • Philadelphia International (PHL) Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX)
  • San Francisco International (SFO)
  • San Jose International (SJC)
  • Ronald Reagan Washington National (DCA)

As an added benefit - customers not currently signed up for Uber can enjoy up to $20 off their next ride when they register their account and use promo code RIDEAA.

Even better news for frequent fliers as they will receive a code in March for $25 off of their next Uber. AAdvantage Executive Platinum members who hold that status as of March 1, 2016, will receive a unique code – regardless of whether they have used Uber before.

Airlines are expanding their reach and this one works out nicely.
