US Airways to Expand Caribbean Service From New York

25th Feb 2004

US Airways will operate new routes and add flights to the Caribbean from
New York’s LaGuardia Airport beginning June 12, 2004. US Airways has also
received U.S. Department of Transportation authority to begin nonstop
service between Orlando, Fla., and Bermuda.
Subject to U.K. government approval, US Airways will operate nonstop
roundtrip Saturday Orlando-Bermuda service May 8 - Sept. 25, 2004. Flights
will depart Bermuda at 12:30 p.m., and will arrive in Orlando at 2:15 p.m.
Return flights will depart Orlando at 1:15 p.m., and will arrive in
Bermuda at 4:40 p.m.

US Airways will operate new nonstop roundtrip Saturday service between New
York and both Aruba and St. Thomas, as well as add a second Saturday
LaGuardia-San Juan roundtrip flight. All new flights are scheduled using
the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.

“US Airways now operates more than 350 flights each week to our extensive
network in the Caribbean and Latin America,” said Douglas D. Leo, US
Airways vice president—international and sales. “When you combine our
more than 30 destinations with our everyday low fares on,
this is the ideal time for our customers to plan a trip to this highly
popular region.”

From LaGuardia, US Airways currently flies year-round to Nassau, Grand
Bahama Island, and San Juan, with seasonal nonstop service to Bermuda.

US Airways will operate the most flights of any carrier to Bermuda this
summer, from eight U.S. gateways: Boston, Baltimore-Washington
International (BWI), Charlotte, N.C., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., New
York-LaGuardia, Orlando, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
(DCA), and twice-daily service from Philadelphia.


US Airways, the US Airways Express carriers and US Airways Shuttle provide
service to nearly 200 destinations worldwide, including 37 states in the
U.S. and 10 destinations in Europe. In the Caribbean and Latin America, US
Airways serves Antigua, Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Cancun, Cozumel,
Grand Bahama Island, Grand Cayman, Grenada, La Romana, Mexico City,
Montego Bay, Nassau, Providenciales, Punta Cana, San Jose, San Juan, Santo
Domingo, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and St. Croix. US
Airways Express serves North Eleuthera and Marsh Harbour in The Islands of
the Bahamas. The US Airways GoCaribbean Network, comprised of Windward
Island Airways, Caribbean Star Airlines, and Caribbean Sun Airlines,
serves an additional nine Caribbean destinations.
