US Airways drops Austin flight plans

Tarheels looking for a quick flight home from Austin will have to wait a bit longer. US Airways, the Charlotte, N.C.-based carrier, won't be flying out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport anytime soon.

Austin airport officials have been trying to get the carrier to come here since the late 1990s. And in August, the airline announced that it would start three daily nonstop flights between Austin and Charlotte.

After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, US Airways said it would postpone the service until May.

But the airline, struggling with fewer passengers and lower revenue, now says it won't be coming at all.

The decision isn't a surprise, but it's "disappointing, of course," said Jamy Kazanoff, acting assistant director of the city's Aviation Department.

While this should of course be disappointing to the people of Austin, other regional and low-cost/low-fares fly to Austin, including Vanguard, Frontier, and Southwest. Also, the airport is served by a variety of major carriers. Three daily flights on US Air isn't going to hurt AUS, and it just might help some of the other carriers in that city.

Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school.

When I use to fly out of Mueller, I used U.S. Air out of AUS. They quit flying out of there in late 1997 before Bergstrom opened. I thought they decided to resume flights out of Bergstrom last year? I guess with American and Southwest U.S. Airways decided it wouldn't be profitable. It's a shame.
