American Airlines further boosts its presence in Los Angeles by becoming the Official Airline partner of the Los Angeles Clippers. American has signed a multi-year deal with the NBA’s Pacific Division champions, which has called Los Angeles home for more than 20 years. As part of the agreement, sports fans will see American’s logo on the court during home games and the airline will be a featured sponsor during in-game TV and radio broadcasts.
"American already serves more customers than any other airline at LAX, and our partnership with the Clippers underscores our commitment to Los Angeles – a city that is vital to our global network,” said Fernand Fernandez, American’s vice president – Global Marketing. “Like the Clippers, we’re invested in winning. We’re ‘going for great’ by connecting LAX to the places more customers want to go and spending more than $2 billion on improvements that will improve the travel experience at the airport and on their flights.”
American customers and employees will also have the opportunity to take part in festivities and events with the Clippers during the season.
