American Airlines Cargo military pet discount extended to include international flights

May 24, 2017

May is Military Family Appreciation Month. In recognition of the dedicated military personal serving domestically and abroad, American Airlines Cargo announces the expansion of its military discount program to include the transport of personal pets to and from all international origins and destinations.

The military discount program now features 50% off published rates for all international pets traveling on American. Available to U.S. military personnel and their dependents, this special rate expands the existing military discount program, which already included 50% off all domestic pet transports.

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