US Airways today announced a
major expansion at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, more
than tripling its daily flights and connecting 10 Caribbean and Latin
American destinations with key cities in the Northeast and Florida,
beginning in February 2005.
In the Caribbean and Latin America, US Airways will introduce new service
in Guatemala City, Guatemala; Kingston, Jamaica; Panama City, Panama; and
San Salvador, El Salvador, subject to foreign government approval.
Additionally, the airline will begin nonstop service between Fort
Lauderdale Hollywood and Nassau, Providenciales, Santo Domingo, and San
Jose, subject to foreign government approval, and San Juan. Service to
Cancun, which will begin on Oct. 16, 2004 as Saturday-only service, will
increase to daily service in February 2005.

In the U.S., US Airways will link Fort Lauderdale Hollywood with nonstop
service from Boston, Newark, and Key West, Orlando, and Tampa, Fla.,
introducing GoFares(R) on each new route. In addition, US Airways is also
launching GoFares for the first time in Charlotte, N.C., and Pittsburgh,
on flights to and from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood. Charlotte GoFares start
as low as $89** each way, and Pittsburgh GoFares begin at $99* each way.

Recently announced Saturday flights from Baltimore/Washington
International (BWI) and Hartford, Conn., to Fort Lauderdale Hollywood,
which begin in November 2004, will increase to daily service in February
2005. New York (LaGuardia) service, also slated to begin in November, will
gain additional daily frequency in February. All three are GoFares markets.

Combined with existing US Airways nonstop service to Ronald Reagan
Washington National, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Providence,
R.I., a total of 13 points in the U.S. will be conveniently connected to
the Caribbean and Latin America via Fort Lauderdale Hollywood.
