American Airlines and their new partners: LetsGetChecked and CareNow.

Making it more convenient to travel

Resuming flights to Hawaii, the Caribbean and select international markets, American Airlines prioritizes traveler safety and peace of mind. That’s why they are partnering with LetsGetChecked and CareNow, plus several international governments, to offer convenient options for preflight COVID-19 testing.

3 ways to get tested

Travelers must complete a test within 72 hours of the last leg of their trip before arriving at their destination.

Options and pricing can be found at their respective links below:

1.At-home test from LetsGetChecked (with a 48-hour turnaround time on average)

2. In-person testing at select CareNow urgent care locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas (DFW) area.

3.Onsite rapid testing at DFW airport, administered by CareNow

For customers who have a connecting flight, AA recommends at-home testing to avoid any interruption during the connection. If a passenger is planning to use onsite rapid testing at DFW, AA recommends adding an hour to your check-in time.

It’s important to note that, while AA is providing these options for convenience, travelers are responsible for ensuring they complete their test in time for the departing flight.

Some international flights require a negative test result prior to boarding, and AA assist in rescheduling flights and issuing trip credits if needed.
