US AIRWAYS' DULLES FLIGHTS TO OPERATE FROM NEW Z-GATES
New Location Means Less Walking for Customers
ARLINGTON, Va., July 28, 2005 -- US Airways and US Airways Express passengers traveling from Washington Dulles International Airport beginning Aug. 1, 2005, will have a shorter commute to their gates from the security checkpoint, as all flights will arrive and depart from the new East Z-Gates.
