US Airways Expands International Reach at Charlotte Hub

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- US Airways (NYSE: LCC) will launch new nonstop service between its largest hub at Charlotte, N.C. and Barcelona, Spain; Brussels, Belgium; Lisbon, Portugal and Manchester, England this spring. The four flights from Charlotte supplement the airline*s current service to these destinations from its international gateway at Philadelphia International Airport. Service to Barcelona, Lisbon and Manchester will begin May 22, 2014. Service to Brussels will launch on June 5, 2014. The new flights bring the number of international destinations US Airways serves from Charlotte to 38 – ten cities in Europe and 28 in Canada, Mexico, Latin America, South America and the Caribbean. US Airways now serves 145 airports in 28 countries from Charlotte.

**US Airways continues to expand our Charlotte hub and our presence in Europe by adding flights between Charlotte Douglas International Airport and four popular European destinations to meet peak travel demand,** said Andrew Nocella, US Airways senior vice president, Marketing and Planning. **The flights complement service from our international gateway at Philadelphia and give consumers on both sides of the Atlantic more one-stop access to popular points in Europe, the United States and beyond. Our new flights also help to strengthen the foundation for our pending merger with American Airlines by providing more access to a broader network.**

**I would like to congratulate US Airways on their expansion of service to some of Europe*s top business and tourist destinations,** said Governor Pat McCrory. **US Airways has been a big part of the Charlotte community and this expansion will continue to boost Charlotte*s reputation as one of the best cities to live, work, and play in America.**

**US Airways* plans to begin seasonal service from Charlotte to a host of Europe*s major cities is welcome news for our region,** said Charlotte Mayor Patsy Kinsey. **This new service will provide our business community with more convenient access to Europe*s business capitals and it will provide our residents with additional access to several of Europe*s major tourist destinations. By expanding its flights from Charlotte, US Airways continues to boost our economy and enhance Charlotte*s reputation as a world-class city.**

Customers traveling between Charlotte and Barcelona in Envoy, US Airways international business class, will experience the Envoy Suite, which is featured on all of the airline*s Airbus A330 aircraft. The Envoy Suite features an adjustable seat that reclines into a fully flat bed, personal in-flight entertainment and a standard 110-volt universal power outlet so customers can work, play or relax.
