FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines has announced it is hiring aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs) around the country during the first half of 2019. The company’s Line Maintenance team plans to hire more than 250 AMTs in approximately 30 cities as a result of increased demand for maintenance support in the U.S. as the airline’s peak summer season approaches.

“This big hiring push is all about providing additional support for our daily mainline departures and reinforcing the operational reliability of our airline as we prepare for our peak travel period and beyond,” said Paul Wroble, Vice President of Line Maintenance. “Increasing our maintenance team, which currently comprises more than 9,000 licensed AMTs, will enable us to continue our focus of improving the overall travel experience for our customers and team members.”

American is dedicated to promoting careers in the maintenance field and working to foster an interest in the industry in individuals as early as elementary school. The airline has been involved in several Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) initiatives geared toward reaching youth. For instance, American’s Line Maintenance team in Los Angeles partnered with Project Scientist Academy and Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum as part of an initiative that supports aspiring young aviators from Compton, California. American also participates in and helps fund various programs geared toward young girls, such as Girls SOAR! Aviation Days and Girls in STEM, to offer fun, inspiring and educational activities related to STEM and aviation.

Working for American’s Line Maintenance team is a rewarding career that offers the opportunity to support the airline’s nearly 1,000 mainline aircraft and be a part of a great team that values, above anything else, the safety of its customers and team members. American offers competitive pay and benefits, including excellent health and flight benefits. Interested candidates can find the available AMT positions and requirements at
