Other Notable Accomplishments

US Airways is also providing a brief update on notable company accomplishments during the month of September:

  • Marked a significant milestone by obtaining a single operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The single certificate allows the airline to operate as one US Airways with one set of policies, procedures, computer systems, maintenance and flight control systems.

  • Awarded the right to fly the first ever route between Philadelphia and the Chinese capital city of Beijing by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The daily service to China will begin in 2009 with wide-body Airbus A340 aircraft configured to seat 269 (42 Envoy and 227 economy). The flight will originate at the airline’s hub in Charlotte, N.C.

  • Broke ground for airline’s new, 72,000-square foot state-of-the-art operations control center near Pittsburgh International Airport. The new facility will accommodate 600 employees, with completion slated for early 2009.

  • Celebrated the debut of two newly painted NFL themed airplanes with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Carolina Panthers.

US Airways is the fifth largest domestic airline employing more than 36,000 aviation professionals worldwide. US Airways, US Airways Shuttle and US Airways Express operate approximately 3,700 flights per day and serve more than 230 communities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. The new US Airways — the product of a merger between America West and US Airways in September 2005 — is a member of the Star Alliance network, which offers our customers 16,000 daily flights to 855 destinations in 155 countries worldwide.
