American Airlines to offer new connection options with Landline
April 7, 2022
Service to Philadelphia International Airport (ABE) will start June 3rd
(FORT WORTH, Texas) — American Airlines is giving customers a new option to connect to its global network through a new agreement with transportation platform Landline. Starting June 3, Landline will connect customers in Allentown/Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (ABE), and Atlantic City, New Jersey (ACY), to the carrier’s Philadelphia (PHL) hub with its state-of-the-art vehicles.
Traveling on Landline is not only a convenient way to start and end a journey, it’s a time-saver, too. Customers begin their trip at their local airport in ABE or ACY, check in with American, and clear security* just as they would for a flight, but board a Landline vehicle instead of an aircraft. Upon arrival in PHL, they’ll deboard airside, enter the terminal and proceed directly to their connecting flight. When they’re ready to return home, they’ll board a Landline vehicle in PHL and arrive at their local airport. American will seamlessly transfer customers’ checked bags between Landline’s vehicles and American’s flight network.
“Our partnership with Landline is one more way we’re making it easy for customers to connect to American’s premier trans-Atlantic gateway in Philadelphia,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Customers can start and end their journey at their local airport, relax on a comfortable Landline vehicle, and leave the driving to someone else while they work or start their vacation early. From road to runway, we’re excited to welcome customers on board.”
Members of American’s award-winning AAdvantage® loyalty program will also earn miles and Loyalty Points when traveling on Landline-operated routes.
“For too long, travelers have been bothered by all of the ancillary parts of flying, including getting to and from the airport, parking, transporting their bags, and navigating security. We’re changing that,” said Landline CEO and co-founder David Sunde. “Landline is proud to partner with American to make travel even more efficient, affordable and relaxing. Alongside American, we’re excited to introduce travelers to a whole new level of convenience and comfort.”
Landline vehicles accommodate up to 35 customers and feature leather seating, complimentary Wi-Fi, streaming entertainment and power at every seat. Tickets for itineraries with American and Landline service will be available for sale April 11.
Starting June 3, Landline will operate the following schedule:
