The DEC and American Airlines Launch Business Extra Partnership

The Dallas Entrepreneur Center and American Airlines have partnered up to provide the DEC startups and entrepreneurs with Business Extra points.

American Airlines has provided entrepreneurs with programs and opportunities for travel, through its Innovators Initiative.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to build loyalty for American Airlines through the Business Extra program,” said Trey Bowles, cofounder and CEO at the DEC.

“We also hope that other Dallas-based corporations will provide the same kinds of opportunities and resources for the startup community here. What American is doing is indicative of their support for entrepreneurship and for Dallas,” says Bowles.

Through the Business Extra program, companies can help The DEC earn points to fly entrepreneurs on American flights. Businesses can register for American’s Business Extra through The DEC’s referral program. Registration is free and companies will earn Business Extra points while individuals still earn AAdvantage miles. Both points and miles can be redeemed for travel on American.
