**AAdvantage Business™ FAQs
1. What is the AAdvantage Business™ program?
AAdvantage Business™ is a new loyalty program from American Airlines that rewards eligible companies and their business travelers for booking travel on AA.com, in the American app, or with American Airlines Reservations.
 
Program members also have access to a suite of tools to better manage business travel.
 
Starting October 16, 2023, new CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard® cardmembers will receive AAdvantage Business™ membership as an added benefit to the card.

Primary Cardmembers and Authorized Users will earn Loyalty Points based on their card spend, which will post to their individual AAdvantage® account.
 
2. I already have a CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® credit card. When will changes to my card take effect?
CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® cardmembers that opened their account before October 16, 2023 will be enrolled in the AAdvantage Business™ program at a later date. Stay tuned for additional communications from Citi and American Airlines on registration instructions for both your business and Authorized Users.

Businesses earn 1 AAdvantage® mile for every 1 U.S. dollar on eligible business travel. Plus, with the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard® businesses can earn 2 miles per $1 on eligible American Airlines purchases.

Keep in mind travelers must:

  • Book on AA.com, in the American app or with American Airlines Reservations
  • Be registered with the company’s AAdvantage Business™ account
