US Airways Applies For Service Between Its Charlotte And Philadelphia Hubs And Sao Paulo, Brazil

Recommended Posts

filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for the rights to operate daily, year-round service between the airline's hubs in Charlotte, N.C., and Philadelphia, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. US Airways will begin service between Charlotte and Sao Paulo on June 8 using frequencies leased from another carrier. An award of rights for CharlotteSao Paulo flights will ensure US Airways avoids a service interruption due to the frequency lease terminating prior to Open Skies between the United States and Brazil commencing in 2015.

 

US Airways' proposed service between Philadelphia and Sao Paulo would be the airline's third daily flight to South America and would complement its existing service to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro from its Charlotte hub.

"Brazil continues to be an important market for US Airways and we are committed to expanding our presence throughout the country," said Doug Parker, US Airways' chairman and CEO. "The additional frequencies will allow US Airways to continue offering business and leisure travelers an attractive option for travel between our largest hub in Charlotte and South America's most important business destination without interruption to the service. Additionally, they will give customers throughout the Northeast a complementary, new option for travel to Brazil through our international gateway at Philadelphia."
