- US Airways, which merged with American Airlines last year, started operating from Grand Rapids, MI (GRR) with two new routes, both of which are served twice-daily using Air Wisconsin’s 50-seat CRJ 200s. Firstly, the oneworld member commenced flights to Charlotte Douglas, NC (CLT) on 2 September; while on the following day, it inaugurated the 922-kilometre sector to Philadelphia, PA (PHL). US Airways will face no competition on either of the two airport pairs. See how Grand Rapids Airport’s FTWA compares to the others sent in this week from around the world.
