US Airways to fly daily to Sao Paulo

 

US Airways has filed a supplement to its March 4 application with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for the rights to operate daily, year-round service between Sao Paulo, Brazil and the airline’s hubs in Charlotte, N.C. and Philadelphia.

“US Airways’ application injects important new competition into a highly regulated market,” said Senior Vice President, Marketing and Planning Andrew Nocella. “Thanks to our new service from Charlotte, more than 85 cities in the United States will have easy one-stop access to South America’s most important business market. Our proposed new service from Philadelphia would provide 65 communities in the country with one-stop access.”

The airline will begin service between Charlotte, its largest hub, and Sao Paulo on June 8 using frequencies leased from another carrier. An award of rights for Charlotte – Sao Paulo flights will ensure US Airways avoids a service interruption due to the frequency lease terminating prior to Open Skies between the United States and Brazil commencing in 2015. Each year more than 36 million US Airways customers fly through Charlotte Douglas International Airport, which is the third-largest U.S. airline hub, on more than 640 daily flights to 136 destinations in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico and Latin America.
