American Airlines is expanding its Five Star Service options for top customers travelling through Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK). The new additions offer off-terminal entrance and private screening service with The Private Suite in LAX, as well as an effortless travel experience to JFK or LAX airports with Blade, a digitally powered aviation company.
Expedited security screening at The Private Suite’s terminal entrance
American Airlines Five Star Service is a premium, personal airport experience available for departures, connections or arrivals in select markets. Customers purchasing a Five Star Service experience can take the worry out of travel and customise the experience to fit their interests. The services provided by Blade and The Private Suite will be available as add-ons for customers purchasing Five Star Service or Five Star Select, an elevated Five Star Service experience with access to the Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining.
Customers in the Los Angeles or the New York areas can skip the traffic and get to the airport faster with a private helicopter transfer from Blade. When travelling with Blade, customers will be picked up in the city at a destination of their choice and flown to LAX or JFK, where they’ll be greeted by an American Airlines team member and escorted via Cadillac to Flagship First Check-In. After clearing security, customers can spend their extra time relaxing or working in the Admirals Club, Flagship Lounge or Flagship First Dining before their flight. Blade service is also available for arriving customers.
Private helicopter transfer from Blade
Premium cabin customers who value efficiency, luxury and privacy when travelling through LAX can choose to access The Private Suite’s private entrance, away from crowds and traffic. The exclusive, first-of-its-kind terminal offers departing customers private, expedited security screening on site with Cadillac escort across the tarmac directly to their gate or to the Flagship Lounge and Flagship First Dining. Similarly, arriving customers can clear international customs in fewer than five minutes at The Private Suite’s own dedicated international arrivals hall.
Blade transfer service will be available to customers who book a private transfer through the Blade app. The Private Suite service will be available for customers travelling in premium cabins and can be booked by calling the Five Star Service team.
