US Airways to launch
Philadelphia-Dublin summer flights
11 May, 2007: It's a time of the
year when every International air
carrier is hurrying to start new
routes and US Airways is no exception.
From October 28 onwards, the US
Airways will launch its Philadelphia (PHL)
to Dublin (DUB) flights.
US Airways will operate flights to
Dublin on Tuesdays, Thursdays,
Saturdays and Sundays and the return
flight back to Philadelphia will be on
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and
The Philadelphia - Dublin flight will
be the twelfth flight that the US
Airways operates to Europe this summer
season. Dublin is a major tourist spot
and US Airways is just following the
habit of air carriers to operate
seasonal flights to many a tourist
destinations such as Dublin.
The Phoenix-based US Airways has now
become the fifth largest domestic
airline in the US. The airline is
undergoing a bit of transformation
under its new leadership.
Though the airline is in good
financial condition, there had been
some instances of computer problems in
the past, especially at the passenger
check-in kiosks. US Airways had failed
in its bid to buy Delta Airlines
earlier this year.
