FORT WORTH- American Airlines (AA) is enhancing the travel experience with the introduction of a groundbreaking business loyalty program.
AAdvantage Business™, the inaugural program of its kind, bestows AAdvantage miles and extra Loyalty Points to eligible companies and their travelers when they book business travel through aa.com or the American Airlines app.
American Airlines Business Loyalty
AAdvantage Business™ paves the way for a swifter and more gratifying journey for both businesses and travelers.
Scott Laurence, American’s Senior Vice President of Partnerships, expressed, “American has crafted a unique offering that sets us apart. We aim to acknowledge companies engaged with us and the passengers in our seats. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement. We’ve devised a straightforward program that surpasses expectations by delivering rewards and resources that benefit all.”
Furthermore, companies approved for the CitiBusiness®/AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard® will earn rewards at an accelerated pace.
How it Works?
Let’s explore how the AAdvantage Business™ program operates.
AAdvantage Business bestows travelers with additional Loyalty Points, supplementing their standard earnings as AAdvantage members.
AAdvantage Business™ offers a straightforward and convenient loyalty program tailored for businesses with a minimum of five employees. It doesn’t mandate a specific spending threshold for companies to commence accumulating miles.
For every dollar spent on eligible business travel, companies accrue 1 AAdvantage mile, which can be redeemed for various travel-related benefits, such as hotel stays, car rentals, access to Admirals Club lounges, and other enriching experiences for their employees.
Simultaneously, individual travelers eligible for the program earn 1 Loyalty Point for every dollar spent, contributing to their pursuit of achieving AAdvantage member status. These Loyalty Points are in addition to any miles or Loyalty Points already earned as active AAdvantage members.
Enhance Your Rewards
When businesses apply for the CitiBusiness®/AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard®, they can boost their rewards and assist their employees in achieving elevated status through card usage.
New CitiBusiness®/AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard® members will earn double the miles for their company on all eligible American Airlines purchases. Additionally, each cardmember will accumulate an extra Loyalty Point toward their AAdvantage® status for every $1 spent using their business card. Moreover, businesses will accrue miles for all other business-related expenses charged to the card, including double miles for telecommunications, cable, satellite providers, car rental merchants, and gas stations. Cardholders can also enjoy benefits such as the first checked bag free on domestic American Airlines itineraries and preferred boarding on American Airlines flights.
For a limited time, businesses that apply for and get approved for the card have the opportunity to receive 75,000 American Airlines AAdvantage bonus miles after spending $6,000 within the first six months of opening the account*. To learn more about this card, visit our website.

The CitiBusiness/AAdvantage Platinum Select Card enhances the day-to-day operations of our customers’ businesses, whether they’re procuring everyday essentials or arranging future business trips.”
