American Airlines stopped accepting paper tickets on November 1 and announced that any reservation for which paper tickets were issued will be canceled and such travelers must purchase new tickets. A spokesman of the airline said that the decision was taken to reduce avoidable costs and complexity as paper-ticket use had reduced significantly.
American Airlines is the second airline in the US and 11th airline in the world to stop accepting paper tickets. The other airlines that no longer issue paper tickets are Qatar, British Airways, Vueling, Copa, Singapore, Silk, Insel, Frontier, Emirates and Iberia.
