US Airways expands flights to Greece and Europe January 5, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in News Flights.

US Airways Group Inc. is adding new round-trip flights from Philadelphia International Airport to Athens, Greece; Brussels, Belgium; and Zurich, Switzerland.

The daily flights, which start in the late spring, will increase the company’s number of daily flights to Europe from Philadelphia to 22.

US Airways, based in Arizona, operates its largest hub at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, where it has more than 500 daily flights and about 5,000 employees. It is also one of the largest carriers seving Piedmont Triad International Airport.

In a bold effort to create the world’s largest airline, the company made an $8 billion hostile takeover bid for Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. (Pink Sheets:DALRQ) on Nov. 15. The board of Delta, which filed its plan to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the spring, unanimously rejected that offer.

US Airways operates 3,800 flights per day to more than 230 destinations in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.
