Why Reserve Air Through AmaWaterways?

When you reserve a river cruise vacation through AmaWaterways, we like to take care of you throughout your entire journey and encourage you to reserve your flights through us as well. Not only do we offer excellent fares on high-quality airlines from most major US and Canadian gateways, but the friendly members of our dedicated Air Team are just one call away to assist you or your travel advisor should any unexpected circumstances occur.


Allow our wonderful Air Team to take care of you and save you the time and trouble of searching dates and air carriers for the best fares. Our knowledge and experience in the industry ensures that we will coordinate the most direct route to your destination within your budget. While we make your plans behind the scenes, you can rest easy and simply look forward to your much-anticipated river cruise vacation.

Great Fares, Quality Experience

Many of our guests choose to reserve their flights through us, which enables us to offer excellently priced airfares in economy and business class which often have less restrictions on airfare rules, providing more flexibility. We have also carefully vetted and only contract with the most comfortable, trusted airlines that offer a high-quality experience, rather than low-cost carriers or charters that might arrive at inconvenient times.

Included Transfers

We are proud to include comfortable coach transfers between the airport and either your hotel or ship (depending on whether you have booked optional land packages). You will also be welcomed by a friendly AmaWaterways representative as you arrive at the airport who will help escort you to your coach – and in some cases, lead you all the way to your security gate at your departure airport!

Peace of Mind

At the time your flights are booked, we triple check to ensure that your flights match your itinerary. However, sometimes the unexpected occurs. Whether it’s an act of nature, a schedule change, a flight delay or cancellation, or a change in a country’s entry requirements, our Air Team has established contacts within each airline to swiftly handle unforeseen events. Working with our Operations Team, we often are able to proactively reschedule your flights when needed to get you to your destination as soon as possible.

We Are Here to Help You

Once your flights are reserved, we invite you to contact us at askair@amawaterways.com for more information. You may also reach us at 800.626.0126 Extension 4 during our normal business hours of 6am to 6pm PST Monday through Friday and 7am to 1pm PST Saturday with any questions you may have about your upcoming flight arrangements. In addition, our Cruise Managers are highly trained and know exactly who to contact in case of emergency while you are cruising, ensuring we can accommodate you should any last-minute flight changes be necessary.

Your Trusted One-Stop Source

For added convenience and peace of mind throughout your journey, we encourage you to consult a travel advisor and make all your future travel plans in one convenient stop. From your flights to exciting pre- or post- cruise land packages and even extra hotel nights, your travel advisor can simplify the process and provide extra peace of mind  by booking it all together with AmaWaterways. Plus, reserve and cruise with confidence by adding our Travel Waiver Plus and Travel Protection Plan, designed to take care of any unexpected circumstances that may arise before or during your travels.
