ATLANTA -- Worldspan launched a free air fare sweepstakes for
travel agents as an incentive to book electronic tickets through
the vendor. Eight airlines are participating in the two-month-long
Ticket to Ride promotion, which was slated to start on June 1. A
different carrier is featured each week. According to Sue Powers,
the CRS' vice president of sales and marketing, agents who book and
ticket e-tickets through Worldspan during the promotion are
automatically entered into a weekly drawing to win two e-tickets on
that week's featured carrier for travel in the continental U.S. The
first participating carrier is United Airlines, from June 1 to 7.
Other Ticket to Ride carriers are Delta, Northwest, TWA, America
West, US Airways, Continental and American.
