PHOENIX, June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/—If you`re still looking for the ideal gift for Father`s Day, America West Airlines (NYSE: AWA) has several ideas including America West Club memberships and Passbooks, the unique GiftMiles program, Senior Saver Packs and gift certificates—all of which will help dad get away from it all in the coming year.

Fathers who travel a lot will love a membership to the America West Club. For just $400 ($325 if dad is a FlightFund Elite member) dad will have access to more than 20 airport lounges worldwide, which offer complimentary snacks and beverages, magazines and newspapers, complimentary use of photocopiers as well as access to data ports and conference rooms. Dads can also be introduced to the airport lounges with an America West Club Passbook. Passbooks contain one-time visits to the America West Club and can be purchased in quantities of two visits for $50, five visits for $100, or 12 visits for $200. These lounges are like an oasis at the airport, which will help dad relax during his time away from home. Customers may dial 1-800-406-6501 to purchase an America West Club membership or Passbook.

Fathers who are FlightFund members will enjoy finding a few extra miles in their frequent flyer accounts. America West`s GiftMiles program allows customers to give the gift of miles for award travel. At just 2.5 cents per mile plus a $15 processing fee, this can be the right-priced gift no matter what the budget. (The maximum mileage purchase is 15,000 miles per account per calendar year.) “FlightFund is the only frequent flyer program that offers award travel beginning at just 20,000 miles year-round, so this is a great way to help dad achieve award travel even faster,” said Kenneth I. Feldman, vice president, marketing. Customers may go to to purchase miles.

If dad has reached the age of 62, a Senior Saver Pack might be just the thing to help him take a few flights in the coming year. A Senior Saver Pack includes four one-way travel coupons. Dad can even share the coupons with a child from 2 to 11 years old, when the child travels with him.

An America West gift certificate may be the most flexible gift for dad—then he can decide how to use the money. America West gift certificates are available in $25, $50 and $100 denominations. “With America West`s business-friendly fares that are 40 to 70 percent below most other major airlines, these gifts certificates will go a long way toward helping dad plan a special trip,” added Feldman.
