American Airlines will add more than 600 reservations jobs at Miami International Airport, as part of an ongoing commitment to its ‘home’ airport.
The airline currently has 200 new representatives in training, and aims to hire more than 400 in the next couple of months, bringing the total of home-based reservations agents to nearly 800. They will join more than 1,500 new team members hired at Miami International Airport (MIA) in 2021.
“As the third-largest private employer in Miami-Dade County, these new full-time positions further strengthen our more than 30-year commitment to our community and to our Miami hub. With the record growth we’ve experienced in the last year, we’re thrilled to continue creating more jobs in Miami,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, American Airlines vice president-Miami operations.
American is Miami’s hometown airline, offering up to 360 daily flights to 140 destinations operated by more than 12,500 locally based team members. Last year, the airline launched six new international destinations and 11 new domestic routes from MIA, resulting in the largest operation in the history of the hub.
