American Airlines Set to Open 600-Room Staff-Only Hotel

American Airlines Set to Open 600-Room Staff-Only Hotel

BY JOSHUA KUPIETZKY 10/12/2022 AGO 0 COMMENTS

In October 2015, American Airlines announced their plans to build a new corporate campus next to their existing Fort Worth, Texas campus. Seven years later, the final addition to the new campus is almost completed, with the conference center and employee hotel scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2023. The new campus is named after Robert L. Crandall who served as the CEO of American Airlines from 1985 until 1998. The new headquarters sits on 300 acres of Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) property.

Skyview 6, the new employee hotel and conference center, will open in the first quarter of 2023. It will replace the American Airlines flight attendant hotel, which has been operating since the 1960s. While the new campus provides most of the same educational and training programs they were previously offered, the larger size allows them to be available to all of American Airlines' 130,000 employees.

This new hotel and conference center will be nine stories tall and include 600 rooms. In addition, there is a 73,000-square-foot fitness facility with a swimming pool, outdoor pickleball, tennis, and basketball courts. There is also a 10,000-square-foot ballroom that can be used as a conference center.

 

Construction for Skyview 6 began in 2019 but was paused in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic threw the entire airline industry into turmoil. In 2021, construction resumed and American employees will soon be able to experience all the perks of Skyview 6, personally and professionally.
