American Airlines is the largest carrier in the world, moving into the top spot following its merger with US Airways that closed in 2015.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, American and its regional affiliates fly more than 1,500 aircraft through nine hub cities.

American traces its history back to 1920s, when a mail carrier operation that would become today’s American flew its first flight. This century, American has grown through several mergers. In 2001, American acquired TWA (Trans World Airlines). In 2015, US Airways led an effort to merge with American, creating today’s version of the company that kept the American Airlines name. US Airways itself was the product of numerous mergers over the years, including a 2005 merger with America West.
