    PDF Download:

    FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AAVacations.com, the exclusive site to find American Airlines flights combined with hotel packages, has received a visual redesign to upgrade the travel-planning experience for customers.  To celebrate the site redesign, American Airlines Vacations LLC is hosting the "$1,500 Vacation-A-Day Giveaway" sweepstakes, which gives away $1,500 toward a trip for 21 consecutive days.  

    Featured in the site redesign are two new features to AAVacations.com: the ability to search and browse by destination, and the ability to search and browse by vacation type–such as a family vacation, ski vacation or beach vacation, to name a few examples.

    The redesign also highlights a new look that includes larger photos and graphics, along with detailed information about featured destinations. Members of the AAdvantage® program who book online can also earn 500 AAdvantage miles per booking.

    And, as always, by booking a flight and hotel together, customers can save money because American Airlines Vacations has special access to unpublished, discounted fares on American flights and negotiated rates with hotels and resorts around the world.

    The "$1,500 Vacation-A Day-Giveaway" celebrates the redesigned site. Beginning today through March 7, 2011, American Airlines Vacations is giving away daily a $1,500 voucher that can be used toward an American Airlines Vacations package.

    To enter the sweepstakes, simply register or book on www.AAVacations.com/promo. Participants can receive one entry for registering and one entry for booking. Full details for entering the sweepstakes can be found at www.AAVacations.com/promo.  

    "Often the best deal for flights, hotels, cars or activities is when they are purchased as a package, and the redesign of AAVacations.com is a fantastic upgrade that will help people find the most exciting and affordable packages for their next vacation," said Rick Elieson, President–American Airlines Vacations.  "The $1,500 Vacation-A-Day Giveaway is just one more great reason for customers to check out the redesigned AAVacations.com and start their vacation planning today."
