US Airways has introduced seven new routes this week, which will be mainly operated by US Airways Express and American Eagle aircraft. The aircraft are mostly CR2, with an A320 flying between Phoenix and Cleveland.
The routes will operate from four of US Airways' main hubs in Charlotte, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Phoenix.
The new routes include several in competition from other airlines such as United, Southwest and Alaska Airlines:
The new Fall routes were recognized this week across several airports, including Cleveland, which brought in Slider, the Cleveland Indians baseball team mascot, to entertain passengers before the inaugural flight to Phoenix, while Fort Wayne Airport celebrated its new routing with Philadelphia by providing passengers with goodies from posh chocolatier DeBrand.
Since merging with American Airlines in December last year, US Airways has continued to expand its domestic presence, to provide consumers with greater access to their hubs. This has included more convenient connections to reach more than 330 destinations across fifty countries.
Together with American Airlines, US Airways operates an average of nearly 6,700 flights every day from their hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington DC.
We recently reviewed the US Airways Premier World MasterCard as one of our favorites, especially as it has a current sign-up bonus of 50,000 miles with your first purchase. The merger with AA will affect this card's benefits soon, so apply now while you still can.
