    American Airlines offers nonstop flights each day to financial capitals and the most important cities across the globe. In recent years, American and its partner, American Eagle, have bolstered an already vast international network by adding new routes into Asia, including nonstop service from Chicago to Shanghai and Beijing; Chicago to Helsinki, Finland; Los Angeles to Shanghai, China; several routes from Dallas/Fort Worth into Mexico; Miami to Madrid, Spain; and increasing service from New York, one of the major gateways in the United States, with new flights to Milan, Italy, and Barcelona, Spain. In addition, American has added routes to Latin America, especially Brazil, further strengthening its position in a region where it offers more flights to more destinations than any other airline.

    American has also boosted its international footprint, enabling travelers to reach far into Japan, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Mexico by adding new partners via the growing oneworld® Alliance – of which American is a founding member – all the while further strengthening its position as the leading airline serving Latin America. In addition, American has expanded codesharing agreements with airlines such as Etihad, Hainan Airlines, Japan Airlines, Cathay Airlines, Qantas, Alaska Airlines, Westjet, Jet Blue, and others.

    American also gained antitrust immunity and has formed joint businesses with British Airways and Iberia across the North Atlantic and with Japan Airlines across the Pacific. American and Qantas will launch their joint business in January that will allow both airlines to coordinate commercial activities more closely. For example, Qantas will increase its Dallas/Fort Worth - Sydney service to daily in the Summer '12. American codeshares on that route and provides connections to more than 50 U.S. destinations.

    American's international network and those of its partners give travelers a broad offering of more than 900 destinations for AAdvantage® Program frequent flyer members to earn and redeem miles for travel. American's relationships with other airlines are designed to strengthen American's own route network and provide more travel choices for its customers.
