American Airlines Joins Veterans Advantage's Fortune 500 Partner Coalition Starting Veterans Day 2019
American Airlines and Veterans Advantage, PBC, a registered public benefit corporation, recently began a new global partnership with the creation of a new military discount of up to 10% on American Airlines flights.
This new ticket discount is available to active duty service members, retirees, veterans, guard and reserve, and their eligible family members enrolled in VetRewards, the premium subscription service of Veterans Advantage.
“We are proud to continue our commitment to our nation’s military by recognizing their service through this offer,” said David Seymour, Senior Vice President of Operations at American and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. “We hope our service members and their families will take advantage of this opportunity to travel the beautiful country they’ve served and venture beyond its borders to our neighbors around the globe.”
The up to 10% military discount American Airlines through Veterans Advantage covers flights for leisure travel within the domestic United States, and globally from the U.S. to Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia.
All VetRewards subscribers 16 years of age and above may access a private booking engine hosted on VeteransAdvantage.com to receive American Airlines ticket discounts. Members will log in to Veterans Advantage’s Military Discounts Marketplace with their Member ID to book their discounted travel.
“We are delighted to have partnered with American Airlines to thank our members who are serving today on active duty, our guard and reservists, and members who have served in America’s military and are now retirees, veterans, and their family members,” said Scott Higgins, co-founder, and co-CEO of Veterans Advantage, and a Vietnam War veteran. “By creating this new, exclusive military discount with Veterans Advantage, American will reward those who commit to defending our freedoms, and enhance their lifestyles by making travel more affordable across their vast worldwide network,” he added.
Finally, Veterans Advantage members will continue to earn AAdvantage® miles on their discounted travel through VetRewards.
Veterans Advantage members who travel to American Airlines destinations also benefit from Veterans Advantage’s secure military ID services to redeem their ticket discounts. For nearly 20 years, Veterans Advantage has been building a trusted military discount platform of over 300 offers only for active duty, retirees, military veterans, guard, reserve, and their families from leading travel providers and top national brand-name retailers as a thank you for service to our country.
Veterans Advantage’s top Fortune 500 partners, such as American Airlines, deploy Veterans Advantage’s proprietary military verification technology to check their customer’s eligibility for their military offers in real-time online, or by phone and at point of sale in-store locations nationwide.
In accordance with best-practice for data privacy protection, Veterans Advantage’s military verification methodology uses FTC recommended de-identification in its verification technology platform to safeguard veterans’ personally identifiable information (“PII”) when redeeming military discounts while also preventing offer fraud and dilution for its partners.
