How it works

AirPass provides members the freedom and flexibility to fly across American, British Airways**, Finnair, Iberia and Japan Airlines’ expansive networks*, providing access to hundreds of destinations across the globe. Get started in a matter of minutes and fund your pre-paid annual membership using a credit card, check, wire transfer or UATP. Individual and shared memberships start at $10,000 per person, providing the available balance for pre-paid travel during your membership term.

Fares can easily be calculated using the AirPass pricing tool and remain constant throughout the membership term making budgeting predictable.

When it's time to travel, AirPass members can use their pre-paid travel funds and book online via American Airlines reservations or their travel agent. Members can also conveniently book AirPass travel for a colleague or companion and share their VIP amenities when traveling together.

**Eligible travel on British Airways is only available for new members and current members who have both migrated to the new online account management platform and are on AIR20 or subsequent contract pricing.
