US Airways starts new Brussels service from Charlotte

Despite being operated by US Airways aircraft, from a well established US Airways base, the new route between Charlotte and Brussels was being promoted at its launch as an American Airlines service. Present for the ribbon-cutting were (left to right); Mr Javier Equisoain-Blanco, American Airlines Sales Manager Benelux; Ms Gisèle Meynaerts, American Airlines Station Manager at Brussels Airport; and Mr Léon Verhallen, Head of Aviation Marketing at Brussels Airport. The flight will operate four times weekly over the summer season until 17 August.

  • US Airways has expanded its transatlantic network from Charlotte, NC (CLT), with the introduction on 5 June of four times weekly flights to Brussels (BRU). The 6,770-kilometre service will be flown by US Airways’ 767-200s, but is being marketed as an American Airlines route. The service terminates on 17 August. Also last week, US Airways launched three new domestic routes from Philadelphia, PA (PHL), all of which will be flown either by Air Wisconsin or Republic Airways, using mostly 50-seat CRJs. None of these airport pairs face direct competition.
