Supplier Diversity


In This Section

The Supplier Diversity program affords qualified minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, service disabled veteran-owned, LGBT, diverse and small businesses the opportunity to participate as potential suppliers for products and services for American Airlines.

American sources the best quality products and services to provide to our customers. To do so, we rely on our suppliers and contractors to perform to the highest industry standards. The Supplier Diversity program is designed to bring the added value of diversity to our purchasing program by proactively seeking out diverse suppliers through direct relationships with American and indirect relationships with our prime suppliers and contractors. The program is a catalyst to foster mutually beneficial relationships with minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, service disabled veteran-owned, LGBT, diverse and small businesses locally and throughout the United States.

At American Airlines, we:

  • Evaluate products and services on their merits, giving fair and impartial consideration to all suppliers
  • Award contracts based on the highest quality and best delivery combined with the most competitive cost to the corporation
  • Review constantly the performance of our suppliers and contractors to enhance their ability to provide products and services that exceed industry standards
  • Assure inclusion of diverse companies in the procurement opportunities
