US Airways Introduces `Philly Overnight` Fares Online And Special Saturday Shopping Fares

US Airways introduced new extended weekend bargain fares to Philadelphia where customers who purchase tickets
online through usairways.com can travel for as low as $138 roundtrip in some
markets.
 
US Airways also introduced special Saturday Shopping Fares, where
customers can travel from select cities in the eastern U.S. to Philadelphia
for $78 roundtrip.  For these fares, no advance purchase is required.  The
Shopping Fares are valid only for same-day Saturday travel on nonstop flights
Dec. 8, 15 and 29, 2001.  Some examples of cities with the $78 fares are
Albany, N.Y., Atlanta, Ga., Syracuse, N.Y., Richmond, Va., Washington (Reagan
National) and Pittsburgh.
 
The extended weekend fares are valid for travel in any of US Airways`
nearly 80 markets in the U.S. served nonstop daily to and from Philadelphia.
Travel must originate Thursday through Saturday with a return Sunday through
Tuesday.  All travel must be completed during the same weekend and no later
than March 19, 2002.  A Saturday night stay is required and tickets must be
purchased at least seven days before departure and no later than Dec. 21,
2001.
 
“There is so much to see and do in Philadelphia, whether it is the new
Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, historic sites, the Museum of Art, the
Franklin Institute, Penn`s Landing, dining at any of the city`s great
restaurants, or a shopping excursion,” said Stephen M. Usery, US Airways vice
president of marketing.  “With these new low fares, there now are no excuses
for missing out on a visit to Philadelphia, one of the greatest cities in the
U.S.”
 
“We are very pleased to have US Airways join in Mayor John F. Street`s
invitation to visitors from across the country to come experience
Philadelphia,” said Meryl Levitz, president and chief executive officer of the
Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation.  “With numerous hotels
offering two-for-one rates on weekends through March 31, there has never been
a better time to visit the place that loves you back.  To book the `Philly
Overnight` Hotel Package` or for information about Philadelphia, visit

America or Trans States Airlines.
 
Tickets become nonrefundable 24 hours after making initial reservations

These sale fares do not include up to $9 in airport passenger facility

segment is defined as a takeoff and a landing.  Seats are limited and may not
be available on all Philadelphia flights.  Other conditions may apply and
schedules are subject to change.  These discount fares may not always be lower
than other US Airways Philadelphia fares.
