Employees of U.S. Airways and their dependents can travel for free domestically and only have to pay taxes on any international trips. Alternatively, if an employee has no dependents, that employee can designate a friend or other relative as a registered guest. Registered guests receive the same travel benefits as dependents. There are also travel benefits for employees' parents, including a fee of $15 for one-way domestic flights and $40 one-way flights to Hawaii and Europe, as of 2015.
U.S. Airways also provides guest passes to all employees, which can be given to anyone the employee desires. The holder of a guest pass pays the discounted price of $25 for one-way flights less than 500 miles in length, $30 for one-way flights between 500 and 1,000 miles in length, and $40 for one-way flights more than 1,000 miles in length. The cost for guest pass holders to fly one-way to or from Mexico, Canada, Alaska, the Caribbean or Central America is also $40, and the cost to fly one-way to or from Europe or Hawaii is $100. Employees may also distribute up to eight round-trip passes each year.
Employees also receive boarding priority, vacation discounts and leave travel for medical or personal emergency purposes. Family members of U.S. Airways employees who served in the military receive unlimited free travel, as well.
These travel benefits apply to both full- and part-time employees of U.S. Airways as of 2015.
