DSC_0598American Airlines released version 5.9.1 of its iOS app on Thursday, adding several new features including support for award bookings.

The new version of the app adds the ability to book award tickets on the app for both American and many of its partner airlines.

Partner airlines that are supported in this release include Alaska Airlines, Finnair, British Airways, Fiji Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, Iberia, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, and Royal Jordanian.

Other recent additions to the app includethe ability to make a same-day flight change via the app last November and in July of last year a new set of features to the app called Customer Baggage Notification. The new functionality notifies passengers shortly after landing via the app, text or e-mail message, of any irregular activity with their bags.

In April, the airline added the ability to get boarding passes for up to nine passengers traveling with the account holder as well as the ability to scan passport data instead of having to enter it manually.
