Business Extra Airline Vouchers

The American Airlines Business Extra awards program provides benefits to the University for all travel booked using our Business Extra account number. These awards are utilized to offset the cost of certain flights, as outlined in this document.

How the University Earns Reward Points
Travel is booked using the University’s unique Business Extra account number (506943). Baylor earns award points based on the mileage for each trip booked under this number.

  3. For one business class upgrade on “long-haul” international flights (one voucher per trip).

Awards may not be used:

  1. For regularly scheduled and budgeted travel.
  2. For upgrades on domestic flights.
