United Airlines and US Airlines move forward with codesharing agreement


United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) and US Airways on 2 Oct 2002 announced they will move forward with their proposed codesharing agreement first announced on July 24.  The Department of Transportation (DOT) today notified both carriers that it has concluded its review of the agreement.

“This is great news for United and a win for travelers,” said Glenn Tilton, United's chairman, president and chief executive officer.  “This agreement is a good strategic fit for both carriers, and our customers will enjoy expanded service options and frequent-flyer benefits, as well as access to each carrier's airport clubs.  We appreciate the tremendous support we received from individuals and businesses throughout the nation, as well as from our own employees, who understand the significant revenue benefits this arrangement can bring to United Airlines.”

US Airways President and Chief Executive Officer David Siegel added: “Our complementary networks - with US Airways' extensive service in the eastern U.S. and rapidly growing system in the Caribbean, and United's presence in the western U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America – will provide passengers with unparalleled choices and convenience.”

United and US Airways customers can begin enjoying access to each carrier’s airport clubs on Oct. 14.  This includes access to United's Red Carpet Clubs™ and US Airways Club locations.  US Airways Club members traveling on a same-day United ticket will have Red Carpet Club access and vice versa.

Additionally, in the coming months, United and US Airways customers will be able to earn and redeem miles in each carrier's frequent-flyer programs.  Code share flights will be phased in starting in the first quarter of 2003.
