US Airways adds 2 Charlotte nonstops

US Airways is adding daily, nonstop flights from Charlotte-Douglas International Airport to Omaha, Neb. and Des Moines, Iowa, starting in March.

There will be two daily scheduled flights to and from each city, operated by US Airways' wholly-owned, regional jet subsidiary, PSA Airlines.

The flights to Des Moines will be on 50-seat CRJ200 jets, and the flights to Omaha will be on 67-seat CRJ700 jets, with a two-class cabin.

Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways operates its busiest hub at Charlotte-Douglas. The new flights, which both start March 25, will bring the total number of US Airways weekday flights from Charlotte up to 640, serving 137 destinations.

Also in March, US Airways will be adding flights at Washington Reagan National and Philadelphia International Airport, and reducing flights at New York's La Guardia airport. The company recently swapped take-off and landing slots in New York and Washington, D.C., with Delta, in order to focus its efforts on its strongest markets.
