Flyi To Start Three More CLT Flights With The A319

"Low-fare airline Independence Air (Nasdaq: FLYi) is proud to announce it will begin new Airbus service to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) on June 1, 2005—increasing the daily schedule to a total of eight roundtrip flights, including three flights to be operated with the company’s brand new
132-seat Airbus A319 aircraft.

Independence Air currently has a schedule of seven daily flights from Charlotte to its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport—all aboard the company’s 50-seat CRJ aircraft. With the expansion of flights and the use of the Airbus A319s, the airline’s total capacity between Charlotte and Washington will grow by 46%, from 350 to 646 daily seats. The full service schedule is seen below.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kerry Skeen said, “We have been grateful for the overwhelming response we’ve received from our new customers in the Charlotte area and we’re very pleased to say that Charlotte has been one of our best markets. From the first day we began offering low-fare service back in October of last year, it’s been readily apparent that people are ready for a new alternative in air service. This expansion will make it even easier for our customers to take advantage of low-fare flights to the nation’s capital and all the cities we serve from our hub at Washington Dulles.”

I have heard that this is a very popular route for DH. However, could they not just replace three of the original RJ routes with the A319? Is 3 more really needed?
