American Airlines Mulls Headquarters Move Year After Merger

Updated on

American Airlines Group Inc. is taking a preliminary look at possible sites for a new headquarters as it approaches the one-year anniversary of the merger with US Airways.

The airline may decide to leave Fort Worth, Texas, where it has been based since 1979, or opt to do nothing, Chief Executive Officer Doug Parker said after a speech today to the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. It’s been rare in the U.S. industry for a carrier to shift base to another city.
