US Airways Expands Philly Service to Europe

US Airways on Wednesday announced new flights from Philadelphia International Airport to three European destinations. Flights to Athens, Greece; Brussels, Belgium; and Zurich, Switzerland begin this summer. The carrier will fly one daily round trip from Philadelphia to Brussels beginning June 1 and from Philadelphia to Zurich on June 8. Flights to Athens begin May 25 and end October 6, when the European summer season ends. "These three new European destinations strengthen Philadelphia's growing role as an international gateway for business and leisure passengers," said US Airways Chairman and CEO Doug Parker. US Airways was able to add the flights after it resolved a dispute with Philadelphia's airport about switching terminals, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
