TWA INTRODUCES BUSINESS FLYER AWARDS CLUB
TWA INTRODUCES BUSINESS FLYER AWARDS CLUB MOUNT KISCO, N.Y., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Trans World Airlines
today unveiled the TWA Business Flyer Awards Club -- a revolutionary new award concept for the business flyer.
"The time has come to change the rules of business travel by giving the business traveler a meaningful award bonus which doesn't have a lot of complications and is quickly realized without the necessity of long- term accumulation," said TWA Chairman and CEO Carl C. Icahn. The Business Flyer Award Club gives members 15 percent of the purchase price of qualifying coast-to-coast non-stop and trans-Atlantic tickets in Business Flyer Award Dollars. These Award Dollars can be used like cash. Members can use these to purchase fully refundable, unrestricted TWA tickets, TWA Getaway Vacations, Ambassadors Club memberships, cruises, hotel accommodations, car rentals, meals at fine restaurants and more. But the passenger isn't the only beneficiary from the new plan. "Business will benefit significantly from our new lower unrestricted fares," said Icahn. These new lower fares include TWA's coast-to-coast non-stop first class for the price of coach ($700) and the "Business Saver" coach fare for $350. In addition, international Business Flyers Award Club members can purchase trans-Atlantic first class for the price of business class ($1,400), business class for the price of coach ($900) or the international "Business Saver" coach fare for $550. All international destinations are included with the exception of Cairo and Tel Aviv. Frequent flyer members continue to accumulate mileage on each TWA trip. The addition of the Award Dollars and special fares of the Business Flyer Award Club add up to the world's greatest award program. Business Flyers can enroll instantly in either or both programs at the time they make their reservations. Benefits begin to accrue immediately. -0- 11/19/91 /CONTACT: Don Fleming of TWA, 914-242-3760/ CO: Trans World Airlines ST: New York IN: AIR SU: PDT CK-SH -- NY057 -- 4996 11/19/91 13:44 EST
