Transportation of the Deceased

The Jim Wilson Desk (1-800-228-7878) handles the transportation of your deceased loved ones, in coordination with a funeral home/director. Our Reservations personnel will make travel arrangements for escorts accompanying uncremated remains.

Cremated Remains
Cremated remains traveling with a passenger are handled in the same manner as carry-on baggage. No special documents are required for travel within the United States. For international travel, refer to that country's consulate and/or burial advisor.

Crematory Containers
Certain crematory containers such as urns are unable to be screened at security checkpoints by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). An American Airlines airport agent may consult TSA personnel to determine if your container may be transported as carry-on or checked baggage. Please seek guidance from a funeral home to help determine if a particular crematory container will pose any difficulty at a TSA screening point.
