American Airlines issued a statement Wednesday in response to the NAACP's imposed travel advisory, which warned black travelers to stop flying with the company.

The airline company released a letter to its 120,000 workers that insured inclusiveness on its flights.

"Of all the really important things our team members do – and that list is long – bringing people together is at the top. We fly over borders, walls and stereotypes to connect people from different races, religions, nationalities, economic backgrounds and sexual orientations. We make the world a smaller, more inclusive place. And we do it professionally and safely every day for more than 500,000 customers across five continents," said American Airlines Chairman and CEO Doug Parker.

"So, we were disappointed to learn of a travel advisory issued by the NAACP regarding American Airlines. The mission statement of the NAACP states that it 'seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination.' That’s a mission that the people of American Airlines endorse and facilitate every day – we do not and will not tolerate discrimination of any kind. We have reached out to the NAACP and are eager to meet with them to listen to their issues and concerns," the statement continued.

American Airlines said it hoped to work with the NAACP to resolve the issue.

"As we work through this in concert with the NAACP, please keep doing the great and noble work you always do: treat our customers and each other with respect; connect diverse groups of people with each other and allow them to see the world; make the world a smaller and more open place; and do it professionally and safely," the response read.

The statement comes after the NAACP alleged several incidents involving black passengers and discrimination on American Airlines flights. The group claimed the airlines often removed black passengers.

"The NAACP for several months now has been monitoring a pattern of disturbing incidents reported by African-American passengers, specific to American Airlines," the NAACP said in a statement released Tuesday. "In light of these confrontations, we have today taken the action of issuing national advisory alerting travelers—especially African Americans—to exercise caution, in that booking and boarding flights on American Airlines could subject them disrespectful, discriminatory or unsafe conditions."

In August, the NAACP issued a similar travel advisory in the state of Missouri. The group claimed that black drivers were getting pulled over by law enforcement at a higher rate than any other ethnicity.
