US Airways Gives Dividend Miles Members More Choice and Flexibility with the New GoAwards Program

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--US Airways (NYSE:LCC) has expanded the choices that Dividend Miles members have with the introduction of its new GoAwards reward program. Beginning January 6, 2010, Dividend Miles, US Airways’ frequent flyer program, will offer a new award structure to provide members more flexibility and options when redeeming miles for award travel to destinations worldwide. GoAwards will make booking travel more convenient with fewer restrictions, and will create four award levels, replacing the previous two tiers.

Currently, Dividend Miles members have two award levels to choose from when booking award travel: Saver and Standard. GoAwards introduces four award levels: Off-Peak, Low, Medium and High. Off-Peak and Low are offered on days when travel demand is lower, while Medium and High are offered on days when travel demand is greater. Customers will have access to last-seat availability, and will be able to combine Coach, First and Envoy cabins and dates at various mileage levels.

“We’re always looking at new ways to improve the redemption experience for our members and allow them to use their miles when they want, where they want and how they want,” said Fernand Fernandez, director of Marketing Programs for US Airways. “With GoAwards, our frequent flyers will be able to book more travel when they want to more than 1,000 destinations in 171 countries on US Airways or our Star Alliance partners.”

Specific details of the new award structure and mileage requirements for award travel worldwide are now available at www.usairways.com/goawards.
