AA Cargo offers travel promotion
American Airlines Cargo is trying to sweeten the deal for shippers by offering a cargo version of a frequent flier program.
The company said customers can earn travel awards for booking cargo shipments online through the AACargo.com Web site. Benefits include credits toward free travel certificates, upgrades and Admiral Club memberships for qualified shipments.
The program will be administered through Business ExtrAA, an incentive program originally set up to help companies manage business travel and earn award points. Once enrolled, American Airlines Cargo customers will be able to accumulate points based on their volumes and level of participation in online booking.
