A week after No. 3 Denver International Airport carrier Southwest Airlines unveiled a buy-one-get-one-free offer to Colorado customers, United Airlines — DIA’s No. 1 carrier — launched its own two-fer promotion.
United said Monday it will offer a free round-trip ticket with the purchase of a qualifying ticket by Feb. 14.
Colorado customers who buy a qualifying ticket for travel in the United States, including Hawaii; Canada; Mexico; and the Caribbean will get a ticket to any North American destination, the airline said. And customers who buy a qualifying international ticket will get another overseas ticket.
The airline also said it would offer two North American fare-class upgrades with a qualifying purchase.
The offer applies to round-trip economy-class tickets booked by Feb. 14 from Colorado cities served by United for travel completed by March 5. For full details and restrictions, visit united.com/denverfree.
United and its United Express unit provide about 500 daily departures from Colorado cities, including 420 from DIA. The Chicago-based airline, a unit of UAL Corp., employs about 4,000 workers in the state.
On Jan. 4, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines began offering a free flight to passengers booking a “Business Select” fare to or from Denver.
The offer applies to new and existing members of Southwest’s “Rapid Rewards” frequent-flyer program for tickets purchased by Jan. 31 for travel completed by Feb. 28. Details: www.southwest.com/denverfree.
And Denver-based Frontier Airlines — DIA’s No. 2 carrier — has been offering discounted one-way, nonstop economy fares from Denver to several cities in the U.S. and Mexico. The sale applies to tickets purchased by 9:59 p.m. MST on Wednesday, Jan. 13, for travel completed by May 27. Details: FrontierAirlines.com.
