Virgin America Teams with Uber to Offer Free Rides, Weekend Getaways

Virgin America announced Wednesday that is has teamed up with ride-sharing service Uber to offer free rides to Elevate frequent flyer members who purchase a flight out of Dallas Love Field.

Eligible air travelers booking any flight out of DAL by Oct. 12 will be provided a free Uber ride of up to $20 to or from the airport.

"...Because we know time is of the essence, particularly for our business travelers looking to skip the parking lot, we're partnering with Uber to make getting to the airport located closest to downtown even more convenient and rewarding for our Elevate members," Virgin America Chief Marketing Officer Luanne Calvert said in a statement. 

As part of the airline's partnership with Uber, travelers selecting the "Friday Night Flights" option on the Uber app this fall will have a chance to win a weekend getaway.

The contest will take place every Thursday afternoon through Oct. 8, with winners receiving two roundtrip main cabin tickets on a Virgin America flight from DAL to Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Austin. Once at their destination, winners will receive a free Uber ride to a four-star property where they'll spend two nights.

Finally, the weekend packages will include a pair of free concert tickets.

Jason Aldean, the Foo Fighters and AC/DC are among the performers winners will have a chance to see live. However, the final weekend's winner will receive an exclusive pass to Austin City Limits, a fall music festival featuring the likes of Drake, Florence and the Machine and The Weeknd.

"With our stylish, low-fare flights departing daily from downtown Dallas to New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Austin, we're excited to offer even more perks and great deals to Dallas flyers," added Calvert.

To enter the Friday Night Flights contest, Uber users can enter the promo code VXDALFNF into the app and request the Friday Night Flights option every Thursday at 3 p.m. The first to make the request will win the trip and receive a full itinerary for the upcoming weekend.

There will be five winners in all.
