eTN Staff Writer  Jul 10, 2009

US Airways customers will have more access to beautiful Caribbean beaches this fall and winter as the airline adds more nonstop flights to Barbados from its Philadelphia hub. US Airways will fly to Barbados four days a week starting October 1 and then offer daily service for the winter season beginning December 19. With this new service, US Airways will offer customers an average of 109 weekly nonstop flights to 14 Caribbean destinations from Philadelphia International Airport during the peak Caribbean travel season.

Senior vice president, east coast, international and cargo operations Suzanne Boda said: "Barbados is a wonderful Caribbean destination, and we're thrilled to expand our selection to it from our hub and international gateway in Philadelphia. These offerings will allow for great connections at Philadelphia and will be a fitting addition to existing Barbados service from our largest hub in Charlotte, NC."

"We are very excited to once again have increased US Airways service from Philadelphia to Barbados," said David M. Rice, president and chief executive officer of the Barbados Tourism Authority. "We're looking forward to bringing more visitors to Barbados from the important US market."
