History of American Airlines
95 years strong
On April 15, 1926, Charles Lindbergh flew the first American Airlines flight – carrying U.S. mail from St. Louis, Missouri, to Chicago, Illinois. After 8 years of mail routes, the airline began to form into what it is today. American founder C.R. Smith worked with Donald Douglas to create the DC-3; a plane that changed the entire airline industry, switching revenue sources from mail to passengers.
Creating a workplace for all
From the team members we hire to the customers we serve, diversity, equity and inclusion is a way of life at American Airlines. Every day, our team members work to make American a place where people of all generations, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, gender identity, disabilities, religious affiliations and backgrounds feel welcome and valued.
Our Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs) connect team members to customers, communities and global mission to have a positive impact. Learn more about EBRGs from the DEI Fact Sheet and about our team members from the environmental, social and governance (ESG) report.
“At American Airlines, embedding diversity, equity and inclusion in all we do is critical to our success in making culture a competitive advantage and creating the best airline for our customers. We will continue to recruit, develop and retain the best and brightest talent with diverse backgrounds to help us innovate and build deeper connections with all who fly with us. We’re proud of the strides we’ve made in DEI and recognize there is always much more work to be done. Progress is made through intention, investment and action, and that’s our focus on the journey ahead.”
