US Air backs air congestion plan

US Airways have applauded the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
for FAA’s plan to reduce airspace congestion in the Northeast.
“With a major hub in Philadelphia, hourly Shuttle operations on the East
Coast and hundreds of flights throughout the Northeast, we are strongly
supportive of the FAA’s plan,” said C.A. Howlett, senior vice president of
public affairs for the airline.  “Administrator Marion Blakey and her
colleagues are to be commended for fashioning a plan that will reduce
congestion by at least 20 percent, while also mitigating noise impacts and
reducing fuel consumption.  The implementation of this plan is the single best
solution to the congestion and delays that have inconvenienced travelers for
too long.”
