American Airlines is partnering with Uber to create a door-to-door streamlined service to help customers get from home or work to the airport and back.

The companies are working together to provide customers faster service, better airport navigation, rider promotions and mileage promotions.

American’s customers can now set a reminder for an Uber ride at the push of a button with the help of Uber’s Ride Reminder. After booking their flights on aa.com, American will send the e-ticket confirmation via email, and the customer can click on the “Remind me to Uber” icon to set a reminder for their ride.

The American Airlines app now has added functionality for navigation to guide customers to the nearest Uber pick up location at 11 airports across the country: Charlotte Douglas International, Dallas/Fort Worth International, Los Angeles International, New York’s John F. Kennedy International, New York’s LaGuardia, Philadelphia International, Phoenix Sky Harbor International, San Francisco International, San Jose International and Ronald Reagan Washington National.

American customers who use their AAdvantage Aviator MasterCard as the method of payment for Uber purchases will earn two additional bonus miles for every $1 spent on their Uber rides (from February 7 through July 31, 2016). Total bonus miles will be awarded after the promotion ends.
