Rendell Wants US Airways To Move To PA

Tue Apr 15, 2003 3:07 am

It seems that in return for the $390 million in aid that US Airways is requesting for ops. in Philadelphia & Pittsburgh, Gov. Rendell wants US Airways to move their headquarters to PA:

This would definitely be beneficial for me after graduating college in two years! Do you think they'll actually go through with it?

Hmm... that sounds like it'd just cost more money.

Where's the HQ right now, Charlotte?

Anyway, if it is Charlotte, I'll be willing to bet they put up a pretty good fight.

How does Charlotte traffic compare to PIT or PHL?

Actually the U.S Airways corporate offices (headquarters) are currently located in Arlington, Virginia.

I don't think they are going to move anytime soon, because from what I heard, they paid quite a bit up front, and now how low leases for their Crystal City headquarters.

Plus, I hope they don't move, I'd like to work in that building someday!  Big grin

US not in the Crystal Palace anymore? Not until the economy turns around...too expensive to relocate all CCY employees.
