America West Airlines was one of the US’s top ten passenger carriers, based in Tempe, Arizona out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport; it became part of the US Airways Group after its purchase of US Airways.

At the time of its acquisition of US Airways, America West operated two hubs; its base location at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona and a secondary hub at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada. America West was the second largest low-cost carrier in the US and it provided approximately 100 destinations in the US, Canada, and Mexico. Service to Europe was provided through codeshare partners.

As of March, 2005, the airline operated a fleet of 140 aircraft with one maintenance base at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix.

Beginning January 2006, all America West flights were branded as US Airways, along with most signage at airports and any other printed material, though many flights were described as "operated by America West." Apart from two heritage aircraft, the only America West branding present on aircraft are on some seat covers, bulkheads, and flight attendant uniforms. However, the merged airline retained America West's callsign, "CACTUS" and ICAO code "AWE".
