American Airlines has formed a new partnership with Uber to offer airport transfers to its passengers.
The companies said they will now work together to provide “door-to-door” services and frequent flyer promotions.
“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 of 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.”
Now, after booking their flights on aa.com, passengers will be able to click the “Remind me to Uber” icon on their e-ticket. This will set a reminder for their Uber ride.
The American Airlines app now has also added functionality to guide passengers to the nearest Uber pick up location.
