America West Airlines, the nation’s second largest low-cost carrier, announces the ultimate promotion for those with a “mobile” lifestyle: customers who purchase any ticket at americawest.com and activate a plan with T-Mobile will receive a free BlackBerry 7100t — a $399 value that includes phone, e-mail, Web browsing and instant messaging.
“This is an ideal opportunity for the frequent flyer or anyone on the go — simply book a great fare at our easy-to-use Web site, activate a plan with T-Mobile, and receive a free BlackBerry 7100t,” said Travis Christ, vice president, marketing for America West. “Staying in touch while on the road makes our traveling lives easier, so we’re especially pleased to link booking with americawest.com with leading mobile-communication products and services.”
To qualify for the promotion, which runs from Aug. 12 through Oct. 31, 2005, customers simply have to purchase one ticket at americawest.com, where the lowest America West fares are found. Plus, at americawest.com, 500 FlightFund bonus miles are awarded with every roundtrip ticket purchase and booking fees don’t apply — unlike other travel Web sites.
