US Airways pledges support to codeshare partner United Airlines bid for Beijing route

US Airways will submit testimony supporting codeshare partner United Airlines` application for nonstop service between Washington, D.C., and Beijing. The proposed capital-to-capital service will  provide United and US Airways passengers with nonstop access between two of the world`s most prominent capital cities. If approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the service will begin in March 2007.

"United is certainly the flagship airline between the U.S. and China and we wholeheartedly support its application for service between our nation`s capital and China`s capital city," said US Airways Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Scott Kirby. "With US Airways` large presence on the East Coast - and especially in Washington D.C. -- this proposed route offers our customers access to an important political and economic region."

US Airways will add its code to the proposed Washington Dulles - Beijing flight as well as United`s existing flights to China, which include daily service to Beijing/Peking and Shanghai from both Chicago and San Francisco. The codeshare will open China to US Airways` customers with convenient connection service through the airline`s hubs in Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia and Phoenix and secondary hubs in Las Vegas and Pittsburgh.

"We know that our customers will benefit greatly from the added convenience of codeshare service to China on US Airways and United," continued Kirby.
