US Airways Shuttle announces that customers booking at the last minute now can travel between Washington D.C., Boston and New York for as little as $110. These special “walk-up” one-way fares are available for travel through March 31, 2003.
These fares are capacity-controlled and subject to availability in all three Shuttle markets: New York LaGuardia-Boston, Washington Reagan-New York LaGuardia and Boston-Washington Reagan.
“A competitor recently made similar fare levels available only through select travel agencies in New York, Boston, and Washington. We believe these fares should be made readily available to all Shuttle customers and through all distribution channels,” said Stephen M. Usery, US Airways vice president of marketing and revenue management. “Consistent with our recently-announced broader ‘Web Fare’ distribution strategy, US Airways is working to break down the barriers which have frustrated travelers, corporate travel managers and travel agencies over the past few years.”
The US Airways Shuttle is the only Shuttle to offer hourly departures every business day between New York LaGuardia, Boston and Ronald Reagan Washington National airports, with 16 roundtrips between LaGuardia and Boston, 15 roundtrips between LaGuardia and Reagan National, and 14 roundtrips between Boston and Reagan National.
US Airways Shuttle offers dedicated check-in counters, Club-style gate areas and wide, comfortable seating making Shuttle travel easy and convenient. US Airways Shuttle is committed to consistent on-time performance and customer amenities that cater to the business traveler, and backs that commitment with its industry-leading quintuple performance guarantee and the Triple Miles offer for Dividend Miles members.

The Triple Miles offer allows Dividend Miles members traveling on the Shuttle to earn triple Dividend Miles through Dec. 31, 2002, with bonus miles being applied toward Dividend Miles Preferred Status.
