AMERICA WEST AIRLINES ENHANCES FLIGHTFUND PROGRAM AND INTRODUCES AMERICA WEST CHAIRMAN'S CLUB MASTERS

 PHOENIX, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- America West Airlines (NASDAQ: AWAQC) announced it has enhanced its popular frequent flyer program, FlightFund, making it easier than ever for passengers to earn preferred membership status. FlightFund members automatically become enrolled in the America West Chairman's Club with only 20,000 actual miles flown between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 1993. In addition, the Phoenix-based carrier has introduced a higher level of recognition and privileges with its new America West Chairman's Club Masters program for travelers who fly 50,000 or more actual miles in 1993. FlightFund members will begin to receive preferred membership status for the remainder of 1993 and all of 1994 once the applicable mileage threshold is reached.
 "America West employees are dedicated to serving our most frequent flyers with a special commitment to customer service excellence," said Rose Ceglia, director of frequent traveler marketing.
