American Airlines To Receive $5.8 Billion in Payroll Support

Postby Greg on Tue Apr 14, 2020 6:29 pm

American Airlines Group Inc. announced today that the U.S. Department of the Treasury has approved $5.8 billion in financial assistance from the Payroll Support Program (PSP) created through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The funds, which are targeted to support team member salaries and benefits, will come in two forms: a direct grant of $4.1 billion, and a low-interest rate loan of $1.7 billion. In addition to the $5.8 billion, American expects to separately apply for a loan from the U.S. Treasury of approximately $4.75 billion.

The PSP protects American’s team members from involuntary furloughs or pay rate reductions through Sept. 30, 2020, at which point demand for air travel will have hopefully recovered. The airline has also agreed to limitations on stock buybacks, dividends and executive compensation.
