American Airlines today announced a consolidation of its reservations offices that will take effect approximately one year from now in September 2008.
The Cincinnati office employs about 450 people. All of the employees will be offered jobs within American's Reservations group, either at one of the airline's other offices or through American's home-based agent program, which would allow agents to perform reservations duties from their home.
American was recently advised by its landlord at the Bartlett Building that the facility will be converted to a residential property.
By consolidating its reservations operations, American is able to reduce its costs, while providing the opportunity for all of its Cincinnati-based employees to continue working for the company. "We greatly value the contributions of our Cincinnati team, and we truly hope that all of them will choose to remain with American," said Bella Goren, Senior Vice President - Customer Relationship Marketing and Reservations.
