US Air still powering up fliers

US Airways will maintain power ports on its US Airways’ operated Airbus fleet, which includes the A319, A320, A321 and A330. The power ports supply 15 volts for laptop computers, portable DVD players and other electronics via in-arm connectors. “Our customers, especially business customers, have told us that power ports are an extremely important amenity to them. They no doubt come in handy on longer flights, and in particular transatlantic flights,” said Scott Kirby, executive vice president, sales and marketing.

The power ports will continue to operate on more than 120 US Airways
aircraft. The airline is analyzing whether to install power ports on additional America West-operated Airbus aircraft.
