    Customers From Across Latin America and the Caribbean can now Check in for Flights Online When Traveling to the United States or their Citizen Country

    MIAMI, Florida– Just in time for the busy travel season, American Airlines customers traveling with a passport from Latin America or the Caribbean can now conveniently check in for their flights via the web from any Wi-Fi enabled device.  With this new service, passengers are able to check in online through aa.com two to 24 hours before traveling, if they are traveling to the United States or to their citizen country.

    This new feature allows customers to conveniently check in, select or change seats and request upgrades when available, all from the comfort of your computer or personal device.  It also reduces the time spent waiting at the airport, allowing customers to print their boarding passes at home or via the self-service machines at the airport.

    “We know that our customers value the convenience and flexibility of being able to check in for their flights from anywhere,” said Art Torno, American’s Vice-President- Mexico, Caribbean and Latin America. “We are pleased to expand our web check-in feature to our customers from Latin America and the Caribbean and we know it will help make their travel experience with American even better and more convenient.”

    Web check-in is available for customers with passports from: Antigua, Argentina, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, Trinidad, Turks and Caicos, Uruguay and Venezuela.

    Before the launch of this feature, customers traveling from non-visa-waiver countries were not eligible to use web check-in.
