ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 17, 2002— US Airways announces the launch of a new online award travel tool, exclusively for Dividend Miles members. This new product allows Dividend Miles members to redeem miles online for systemwide travel on US Airways./
Members can access the new tool through the usairways.com reservations system or by logging into their Dividend Miles accounts. Using a streamlined process similar to purchasing airfare on usairways.com, members can view and select destinations and award travel on US Airways-operated flights. A calendar in the tool highlights only the days on which award seats are available.
Upon selecting an itinerary, members can purchase, express buy or hold award reservations for up to three days. Members can choose among all published Dividend Miles awards in any class of service ranging from First Class, Coach Class or Envoy Class, US Airways’ transatlantic business class.
US Airways offers awards for as low as 20,000 miles for off-peak travel in the continental U.S. and Canada. For more information on online Dividend Miles redemption, visit usairways.com/redeemingmiles.

Ben Baldanza, US Airways senior vice president of marketing and planning. “We are putting our Dividend Miles members in the driver’s seat, providing them with a quick and easy way to redeem miles for flights.”
