Fly South to Arizona via America West Airlines
by Jerry W. Bird

Having spent many glorious days and nights in and around
Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson and the Southwest Desert country, we are pleased to introduce the airline that connects Arizona and other fun destinations to Western Canada via YVR Vancouver. By the way, the Arizona golf courses are superb, as was our week at Scottsdale's Mountain Shadows Resort, even though it was a mostly business affair. But business is always more than a pleasure in Arizona. America West offers two daily, non stop flights between YVR Vancouver International Airport and Phoenix, Arizona (to be featured in Air Highways South next fall). Watch for features on Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, Southern California, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Florida and other popular "snowbird" escape destinations.

America West Airlines, now the ninth largest US carrier, began operations in 1983, with 280 employees and three Boeing 737 aircraft serving five destinations. Today, America West has over 12,000 employees and 111 aircraft serving 100 destinations in Canada, the USA and Mexico. The airline offers 600 daily departures with a route system anchored by hubs in Phoenix and Las Vegas - and Columbus Ohio. The Airline now has strategic alliances with several leading domestic and international airlines.

America West's airline's 'flexible fleet' plan allows the operation to grow maintain a steady growth into the new millennium, providing one of the youngest fleets in the United States. Firm commitments to acquire 321 more A-319 and A-320 aircraft through 2001, plus options for 47 more Airbuses is a key to the strategic plan. "We are excited about the addition of the A-318, which will permit the airline to replace our 737-200 aircraft early in the net decade and continue our strategy of more frequent service to key business markets," says W.A. Franke , America West Holdings, CEO.

America West offers additional service to more than 35 destinations through code-share agreements with Continental Airlines, Mesa Airlines, EVA Airlines, Air China and Virgin Airlines.
