American Airlines Sales Conference Benefits Puerto Rico

American Airlines recently hosted its annual Global Sales Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico, bringing in over 900 sales team members from around the world and an investment of more than USD2 million to the island’s economy.

The conference was attended by Doug Parker, CEO, American Airlines, who commented, “We’re thrilled to have hosted our annual Global Sales Conference in Puerto Rico, further strengthening our 47-year commitment to the island and to our more than 250 team members in San Juan, while also helping us continue to do our part in the recovery and relief efforts following Hurricane Maria.”

As part of American’s ongoing efforts to help Puerto Rico’s recovery, over 800 team members participated in eight community outreach projects, donating more than 3,000 hours to initiatives including painting, landscaping, refurbishing facilities and sorting food.

American became the first airline to restore air service to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, flying in more than 100 team members to restart the airline’s operations and bringing in more than 9,072 kg of relief supplies.

Since then, the airline has continued its relief work on the island with a number of initiatives.
