Shipping News Feature
US – WORLDWIDE – In recognition of the contribution that US military personal serving domestically and abroad make to the security of their country, American Airlines Cargo has announced that it is making an expansion of its military discount programme to include the transport of personal pets to and from all international origins and destinations.

The military discount programme now features 50% off published rates for all international pets traveling on American Airlines. Available to US military personnel and their dependents, this special rate expands the existing military discount programme, which already included 50% off all domestic pet transports. Rick Elieson, President, American Airlines Cargo, said:

“We’re incredibly grateful for the sacrifices our military personnel and their family members make. We wanted to further enhance and simplify their pets’ travel experience, while expressing our ongoing appreciation for their service. Expanding our military discount programme was one way to do that.”
