US Airways Bring in Paper Fee

US Airways has announced that it is introducing a fee for customers who request a paper ticket where an electronic ticket is possible. From 1 October, 2005, a fee of £25 per ticket will be charged when the paper ticket is issued and the travel itinerary qualifies for electronic ticketing, or the customer requests that an E-ticket be printed at any US Airways ticketing location.

Margaret Skinner, US Airways sales and marketing director UK and Ireland, said: “This change brings US Airways into line with the industry and will allow us to remain competitive in the marketplace. The majority of our passengers already use e-tickets and find their added convenience very useful.”

US Airways operates daily transatlantic services from the UK to Philadephia from London Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow (summer only) and to Charlotte from London Gatwick.
