US Airways US
From its humble beginnings in 1939 as All-American Airways -- delivering airmail to Western Pennsylvania and the Ohio Valley -- US Airways has grown to become one of America's great success stories. All-American Airways quickly grew into Allegheny Airlines, US Air and finally US Airways through buyouts and mergers.
In September 2005, US Airways merged with America West Airlines to become the fifth largest airline in the United States. Combining the East Coast prominence of US Airways and West Coast strengths of America West Airlines, the new US Airways operates more than 1,268 mainline flights per day. A network of 8 regional carriers, including two wholly-owned subsidiaries, form US Airways Express and US Airways Shuttle to provide an additional 2,340 daily departures. All told, US Airways offers 3,242 daily departures to 208 destinations in 31 countries. A dedicated team of nearly 31,000 aviation professionals welcome 79.1 million passengers per year. The US Airways mainline fleet consists of Airbus A330, A321, A320 and A319 aircraft as well as Boeing 767, 757 and 737 aircraft. The Express fleet utilises more than 295 regional jets and turbo-prop aircraft. With primary hubs in Charlotte, Philadelphia and Phoenix, plus significant operations in Washington D.C. (DCA), US Airways has a rich culture and colourful history as one of America's great airlines
