Now use PayPal for American Airlines tickets PDF Print E-mail

We are big fans of eBay and love receiving and sending payments via PayPal. Now American Airlines accepts PayPal for your airline tickets.

American Airlines is offering customers another convenient and flexible way to pay for their tickets. American will now accept PayPal for ticket purchases made on AA.com, the airline's award-winning Web site. The airline offers many options, including using cash at a Western Union office. If you have the money, they have a way of getting it from your hands to their bank account.

The new PayPal option on AA.com allows customers to fund purchases from their PayPal account utilizing their credit card, debit card, bank account, or PayPal account balance. Purchases are both secure, and speedy, since customers do not have to re-enter any financial information.

The PayPal option is free and available to customers in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Using the new PayPal option is easy. When purchasing travel on AA.com, customers simply select the PayPal option. They'll be temporarily directed to PayPal's secure Web site to log into their account and confirm the transaction or to enroll if they don't have a PayPal account (enrollment is free). Customers will then be returned to AA.com to finish their transaction.

Currently, PayPal is designed only for purchasing tickets on AA.com. For more information on the new PayPal option, visit aa.com/paypal.

PayPal joins a list of other convenient payment options available to customers at AA.com. Earlier this year, American began accepting electronic checks for tickets purchased on AA.com. Payment can be made from a personal checking account in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Visit www.aa.com/echeck for more information.

The Fly Now, Pay Later deferred-payment option also allows customers to apply for instant credit and enjoy six months of no payments for tickets purchased. For terms and conditions and more details, visit www.aa.com/paylater.

Additionally, American accepts American Airlines Gift Cards as payment. Visit www.aa.com/giftcard for more information.

Customers may, of course, pay with a major credit or debit card. They can even pay with cash for trips booked on AA.com, at more than 55,000
participating Western Union locations in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America. A Western Union service fee applies. See aa.com/westernunion for more information.
