US Airways adds new West Coast route from Charlotte

On Monday, US Airways started non-stop service to Portland, Ore., from its hub in Charlotte with one daily round-trip flight. The carrier uses Airbus A320 aircraft configured with 12 seats in first class and 138 in coach.

"This new route is another example of the strong national network we have as a result of the America West-US Airways merger in September 2005," Andrew Nocella, US Airways Senior Vice President of Schedule Planning and Alliances, says in a press release from March that announced the new service.

In addition to the new Charlotte-Portland service, US Airways plans to upgrade its Philadelphia-Portland route on July 19 with a seasonal second daily round-trip flight.
