ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 13, 2003—US Airways will introduce daily nonstop roundtrip service between Boston and Bermuda this spring, as well as expand service from existing U.S. gateways in New York, Washington D.C. and Charlotte, N.C.
The new service between Boston and Bermuda will begin on May 4, 2003, using 120-seat Airbus A319 aircraft configured with 108 seats in Coach Class and 12 seats in First Class.
