has enhanced its array of meeting and event services through a new process by which travelers with negotiated fares can book their reservations directly through usairways.com.
Currently, anyone planning a single special event can request a discount fare program through usairways.com. By adding the ability to book the reservation online, US Airways has significantly simplified the entire planning process.
Once a fare agreement has been finalized, the event planner is given a “meeting ID” number. The traveler making the reservation adds the meeting ID number in the designated area of the online reservation. The negotiated price automatically is calculated and appended to the reservation. Seat assignments and ticketing also can be handled online, all in a few simple steps.
“Event planners count on us to bring them the most efficient online services available, whether it is for weddings, reunions, meetings or association events. Our new program is quick, practical and easy-to-use, and will be more convenient to our customers,” said Steven Tracas, US Airways vice president of sales.
US Airways Group and Meeting Travel offers event planners special discounts and group space programs tailored purposely to the meeting or group needs. Multi-meeting programs also are available through US Airways Group and Meeting Travel.
