                      One of the nations leading airlines, American, has formed a new partnership with the National Park Foundation to encourage exploration of some of the most iconic natural wonders, historic sites, and cultural treasures in the U.S..

“The National Park Foundation helps protect some of the most treasured travel destinations in the United States and shares many of the priorities we have as a company,” said Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer for American. “Like the National Park Foundation, we value exploration, sustainability and access for all to the experiences our world has to offer. We relish the chance to support their work, and we look forward to creating opportunities for our customers to do the same.”

Currently, the mega-carrier is the only airline partner of the National Park Foundation and will support the organization’s efforts to inspire a sense of wonder and a love of exploration in America’s national parks, encouraging people of all ages to spend time outdoors.

“Thanks to partners like American Airlines, the National Park Foundation is reaching new heights in our commitment to ensuring parks thrive and helping all people connect with these treasured places across the country,” said Stefanie Mathew, senior vice president of corporate partnerships at the National Park Foundation. “We are grateful for American Airlines’ support, and we look forward to growing the community of national park champions with them.”

In recognition of Earth Day (April 22) and National Park Week (April 17–25), American Airlines customers will have the opportunity beginning April 17 to donate AAdvantage® miles to the National Park Foundation through the airline’s new Miles for Our Planet initiative. This promotion will extend through the month of May.

Miles for Our Planet will offer AAdvantage members an additional option to use the miles they earn traveling with American to make the world a better place. The new initiative will enable AAdvantage members to donate miles to organizations that protect and preserve our planet’s natural resources and contribute meaningfully to efforts to combat climate change. American’s other opportunities for miles donation include Miles for Heroes, Miles for Social Good and Miles for Global Health and Well-Being.

American offers more than 200 flights to national parks across the United States, from Joshua Tree National Park (PSP), the Grand Canyon (FLG) and Glacier National Park (FCA) to the Great Smoky Mountains (TYS) and Acadia National Park (BGR), plus many more.
