US Airways Goes After Columbia Route

US Airways intends to pursue flight authority between Charlotte, NC, and Bogota, Colombia, when the U.S. Department of Transportation begins selecting carriers for 21 new flights to South America. "Colombia is a very attractive market for US Airways and fits perfectly into our commitment to grow our international service," said Doug Parker, US Airways' chairman and CEO. "As a rapidly growing city with a vibrant economy, Charlotte is primed for international expansion. With current service to 24 destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean, expanding our reach to South America is a logical step." Visit []. (JM)
