TEMPE, Ariz., Sep 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- US Airways* (NYSE: LCC) Senior Vice President, Operations Planning and Support, Kerry Hester, was named as one of Profiles in Diversity Journal*s **Women Worth Watching** for 2011. The publication*s September/October issue is dedicated to acknowledging the achievements and personalities of leading women executives. Ten executives, including Hester, were nominated by colleagues, peers and mentors for demonstrating initiative and earning achievements or accolades within their industries.

**It*s no surprise to us that Kerry was selected as a woman to watch in 2011,** said US Airways* Chairman and CEO Doug Parker. **Kerry has played a key role in the creation and execution of our ancillary revenue programs and recently completed the transition to a new technology platform for our airline*s interactive voice response system. She is a customer advocate that champions service while keeping a business perspective on the bottom line, and we are fortunate to have her on our team.**

At US Airways, Hester is responsible for operations planning and analysis and overseeing crew resources. She also oversees reservations and the strategy, planning and service recovery functions within customer service.

Elise Eberwein, US Airways* executive vice president of people, communications and public affairs, said, **Kerry is also an outstanding role model for all of our employees, and importantly takes time to mentor others. She recognizes the importance of informal mentoring relationships and accepts the responsibility for leading the way for others readily. We look forward to her future contributions to US Airways* success.**

**I am truly honored to be featured alongside such an accomplished group of professional women,** said Hester. **While no two paths to professional achievement are the same, I attribute my career successes to maintaining a positive attitude, a strong sense of perseverance and an aptitude for continuous learning, and I surround myself with employees who share those attributes.**

US Airways* commitment to diversity includes promoting and maintaining a diverse workforce, providing all 32,000 employees with access to various employee resource groups including the Professional Women*s Network (PWN). The PWN serves as a vehicle for the development and enhancement of career opportunities; a networking forum; as well as a company resource to address issues affecting women in their professional roles. The Professional Women*s Network fosters a positive, creative and productive work environment for all employees free of bias and stereotype. US Airways* employee resource groups continue to look for ways to impact the business and the communities they serve in a positive way.
