distribution channel while supporting US Airways’ goal of lowering its
distribution costs.”

“We are pleased to work collaboratively with Worldspan to make our Web
fares more widely available, and at the same time manage our distribution
costs,” said B. Ben Baldanza, US Airways senior vice president of
Marketing and Planning. “We believe this agreement is positive for our
traveling customers, travel agents, Worldspan and US Airways.”

Expanded fare content from US Airways will be available in the Worldspan
