American Airlines Offering More Benefits to SMEs

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 29 June 2011

SMEs can now earn Business ExtrAA program points on American Airlines codeshare flights operated by British Airways, Iberia, or Japan Airlines, in addition to all American Airlines flights.

The new benefits allow companies enrolled in American's business-to-business loyalty program aimed at SMEs to earn base points on more flights and earn awards more quickly.

For example, American's Business ExtrAA program will now reward companies with points when their employees travel for business on American Airlines or American Airlines codeshare flights operated by British Airways, Iberia, or Japan Airlines and include the company's Business ExtrAA account number in their reservations.

Those employees then also earn miles on their personal frequent flyer accounts when traveling using their company's Business ExtrAA account number, so both the company and the individual traveler benefit.

In celebration of the new benefits for SMB customers, American has launched a promotion that allows companies that are Business ExtrAA members to earn double points on all qualifying American Airlines flights to Europe and Asia, all American Airlines codeshare flights operated by British Airways and Iberia to Europe, and all American Airlines codeshare flights operated by Japan Airlines flights to Asia.

The promotion ends 31 July 2011. Business ExtrAA members can register for the promotion using the code JBDOUBLE.

"We are very pleased to extend joint business benefits to small and medium businesses and we will continue working to ensure that these companies and their travelling employees benefit from our overall joint businesses," said Karen Buls, American's Director Small and Medium Enterprise Products, Marketing and Sales Strategy. "We understand the importance a face-to-face relationship can have for SMBs. One new customer can create exponential growth for an SMB, and we want to ensure SMBs benefit from our joint business with British Airways and Iberia and our joint business with Japan Airlines."
