American and US Airways Confirm Merger

American and US Airways Confirm Merger

As reported by Irish Travel Trade News last Monday, American Airlines and US Airways have today confirmed that they are to merge. They said: “We expect the transaction to be completed in the third quarter of 2013. Until the merger is complete, American Airlines and US Airways will remain separate companies. You should continue to book, track and manage flights through your usual channels, and your clients’ flight reservations will be unaffected.”

US Airways

Operating under the American Airlines name, the combined company will provide customers with access to more choices and increased service across a larger worldwide network and through an enhanced Oneworld alliance.

American Airlines

The combined company is expected to maintain all hubs currently served by American Airlines and US Airways, with increased service to existing markets and service to new cities. It is also expected to provide the most service across the East Coast and Central regions of the USA, including the East Coast shuttle, and to expand its presence and further strengthen its network on the West Coast.
