The complementary global footprints of the two organizations enable AAdvantage® members to easily locate and work from one of Regus’ fully equipped and staffed business centers. Regus’ growing portfolio includes 92 countries and each location offers all of the business amenities and resources that customers need to be productive while traveling.
Under the new agreement, AAdvantage® members will earn seven miles per dollar spent on new virtual office or Businessworld sales and on day office, meeting room or video communications bookings. Five AAdvantage® miles will be awarded to members per dollar spent on new full-time office agreements at any Regus location.

“We are very excited to launch our partnership with American Airlines and will continue to look for innovative ways for AAdvantage® members to earn more miles with Regus,” said Regus Director of Partnerships Michael Haas. “Many of Regus’ customers are already AAdvantage® members and are familiar with our services. This new agreement will make business travel a seamless experience for American Airlines’ passengers because they can now tap into our network anywhere in the world and be guaranteed a proper place to work or conduct meetings.”
“One of the best features of the AAdvantage program is the ability for members to earn miles through everyday activities – including work,” said Suzanne Rubin, American’s incoming President – AAdvantage Loyalty Program. “This new agreement with Regus allows our AAdvantage members to conveniently boost their mileage balance while conducting business during their travels.”
