More airline credit cards are reaching out to small business as air travel remains soft. America West Airlines and Bank of America introduced the FlightFund VISA Business Card. American Airlines, Delta, Northwest, US Airways, and Alaska Airlines now offer business versions of their credit card programs. The new FlightFund card product will target small-business owners who have up to $10 million in annual sales and fewer than 100 employees, and enables small-business owners to choose between two mileage-earning options: “Company Mileage Option” and “Individual Mileage Option.” The “Company Mileage Option” enables miles earned from purchases by all employee cardholders to be rolled into one designated FlightFund account. “Individual Mileage Option” allows the employee cardholder to earn miles from purchases into his or her own individual FlightFund account. FlightFund VISA Business cardholders will receive 5,000 First Purchase Bonus Miles and 1,000 Anniversary Bonus Miles annually. The card carries a $50 company annual fee and $25 annual fee per card. Other benefits include automatic enrollment in the FlightFund Dining program. Customers can earn a total of up to 10 miles spent per $1 at participating restaurants, in addition to the one-mile per dollar they earn for using the card. Corporate AWArds Business owners are also enrolled in America West’s Corporate Awards Program, which offers 5% off all America West and America West Express ticket purchases. Account holders also receive one free America West Club Pass each year and a special invitation to join the America West Club with the $50 initiation fee waived.
Cardholders also receive double miles for purchases of America West airline tickets. For more information visit http://www.americawest.com or call 1-800-360-5080.
