ATA recently extended its Anniversary Travel Awards program through January 31, 2005. The program, originally launched in September 2002, offers loyal customers great travel awards when they fly frequently on ATA or ATA Connection (Chicago Express Airlines, Inc.) and book their travel online at ATA.Com. By purchasing and flying as few as three round-trips, a customer can earn a free domestic companion ticket, an award not offered by any other carrier. Free domestic tickets are earned after only six round-trips, and international tickets to the Caribbean/Mexico and Hawaii are earned after nine and 12 round-trips, respectively. Since no blackout days apply, ATA Travel Awards participants may book earned free tickets any day of the year. While other awards programs may exclude their cheapest fares, ATA believes frequent fliers should have an opportunity to take advantage of both low fares and free trips.

Customers who don`t have bags to check can skip the check-in process at the airport, a time saver for both business and leisure travelers.
