Boutique Air, a commuter airline providing scheduled and charter air services, has inked an interline agreement with the American Airlines. This will provide online ticketing facility for Boutique Air on American Airlines website, aa.com, for passengers flying out of Muscle Shoals and to any other destination across the country. Muscle Shoals is a Northwest Alabama Regional Airport.
So, this interline agreement is rather limited in scope to begin with and is meant for only passengers traveling out of Muscle Shoals. However, this makes it extremely convenient for them as they do not have to buy two tickets from two websites and waste double the time. Now, they can do it easily on one website.
Furthermore, the check-in bag would not need to be screened and cleared multiple times. It could be checked-in till the final destination, saving time and effort and providing seamless travel opportunity to passengers of two airlines.
It shall be noted that Boutique Air was also in codeshare agreement with United Airlines, another major carrier, last year. This had allowed passengers to book tickets on United Airlines website for flights operated by Boutique Air and also earn the MileagePlus points while flying with Boutique Air.
