Our Clean Commitment

We’re committed to giving you peace of mind when you travel. That’s why we’re the first airline to achieve GBAC STAR™ Accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council. This ensures we have the proper procedures to respond to biological threats like COVID-19.

Here’s more of what you can expect:

PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer dispensers are available in select locations before and after security.

Similar to hospital standards, HEPA filters on all mainline and most regional aircraft refresh the cabin air every 2 to 4 minutes.

Face masks
This content can be expanded

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend that people wear a face mask in indoor public transportation settings, but they aren’t required to be worn in airport settings or on your flight unless an individual jurisdiction has these requirements.

We recommend checking the cities / countries you’re traveling to / through / from for the latest updates and travel requirements.

Enhanced cleaning
This content can be expanded

We clean and sanitize high-touch surfaces in the airport, like kiosks, ticket counters and seating areas. On our planes, we deep clean tray tables, seatbelt buckles, armrests, window shades, seatback screens, doors and overhead bin handles.

Touchless experience
This content can be expanded

To limit interaction, you can scan your boarding pass at the kiosk to automatically print your bag tags at most U.S. airports. At our clubs, show your card or scan your boarding pass to enter. And during boarding, you can scan your own mobile or printed boarding pass.

HEPA filters on American

Clean air is a hot topic at American. But here’s the thing, HEPA filters have been purifying aircraft cabin air since the ’90s. Hear from Flight Attendant Jacqueline Brown as she shows you the ins-and-outs of how HEPA filters function on our flights.
