US Airways and Bahamasair Kick Off Codeshare

US Airways and
Bahamasair customers now can enjoy increased service between the East
Coast and the Islands of the Bahamas through a new codeshare agreement.
US Airways’ and Bahamasair’s agreement encompasses Dividend Miles accrual
and redemption on all Bahamasair flights as well as codesharing on daily
flights between the U.S. and the Bahamas, as well as intra-Bahamian
flights. US Airways customers now have new access to Governors Harbour,
George Town and Treasure Cay, as well as additional flights to North
Eleuthera, Marsh Harbour, and Grand Bahama Island, all via connections in

Bahamasair customers will have new access to U.S. gateways, including
Charlotte, N.C., New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Philadelphia from both
Grand Bahama Island and Nassau, as well as Boston and Ronald Reagan
Washington National Airport from Nassau. Bahamasair customers also will
have single- ticket connections to US Airways’ nearly 200 destinations.

Codeshare flights are available for purchase immediately, for travel and
Dividend Miles benefits beginning Sept. 15, 2004.

“This relationship with Bahamasair is a valuable and logical extension of
our expansion in the Caribbean,” said N. Bruce Ashby, US Airways senior
vice president of alliances. “With five gateways to Nassau and three to
Grand Bahama Island, our customers have every reason—including
convenience and mileage earning opportunities—to visit the Out-Islands
of the Bahamas.”

“Bahamasair is pleased to partner with US Airways in this codeshare
agreement, which extends Bahamasair’s reach from a number of Northern
cities in America to the quaint and peaceful Out-Islands of The Bahamas,”
said Van Diah, Chief Commercial Officer, of Bahamasair. “This agreement
complements Bahamasair’s objective of transporting tourists into and
around The Bahamas while providing airlift to the Bahamian passengers
traveling into North America.”
