*US Airways’ GoFares are simple, however, in addition to the fare, the federal government requires that the company collect a tax of $3.10 every time a customer takes off on one of US Airways’ planes, plus $2.50 per segment, up to $10 per trip (the September 11th Security Fee). Some of the airports that customers might visit also charge up to $4.50 for passing through, but the total is capped at $18 per trip. The lowest fares must be purchased 14 days in advance (except Sarasota), are one-way, and are nonrefundable. Last minute fares are also available one-way. Other restrictions may apply. For more details, see usairways.com/gofares.
US Airways has many other airline partners, and a part of a GoFare or any other trip might be on one of the partner’s airplanes. These GoFares are available for travel on the US Airways Express® carriers Air Midwest, Chautauqua, Colgan, Mesa, MidAtlantic Airways, Piedmont, PSA, Shuttle America or Trans States. A flight also might be operated by our Star Alliance partner United Airlines®. For all of the details about GoFares, including a few other restrictions, please go to usairways.com.
US Airways introduced the first phase of its GoFares in Philadelphia on April 29, 2004, and GoFares are now available on 22 routes to and from Philadelphia and 39 routes from Washington. A full list of GoFares markets is available online at usairways.com/gofares.
