America West`s Codeshare Agreement With Big Sky Airlines Begins

A codeshare agreement between America
West Airlines (NYSE: AWA) and Big Sky Airlines (PCX: BSA) is now operational.
Travelers can contact America West`s reservation line at 1-800-235-9292 or
their travel agent to book online connecting flights between America West`s
extensive service in North America to 20 Big Sky markets in Montana, Texas,
Oklahoma and Arkansas.

The codeshare agreement offers online connections to Big Sky destinations
such as Kalispell, Billings, Missoula and Great Falls, Mont.; Enid, Okla.; and
Jonesboro, Ark., via America West non-stop flights from Phoenix to Spokane,
Wash.; Denver and Dallas.

The agreement also includes adding Big Sky Airlines as a partner in
America West`s FlightFund frequent flyer program.  This partnership will allow
FlightFund members to earn and redeem miles on Big Sky when an itinerary
includes an America West flight.  Members will earn one mile for every mile
flown with a minimum of 500 miles earned per segment.
As a special launch offer, FlightFund members will earn double miles on
Big Sky flights when connecting to America West before June 30, 2001.
“We`re pleased to be able to offer these additional destinations for our
customers and add the extra value for our FlightFund members as well,” said
Bernie Han, senior vice president of marketing and planning.
