UA Introduces New UAX Partner!

"Colgan Air Joins United Express as New Flying Partner"

"Colgan will begin serving United Express routes out of Washington Dulles International Airport on Oct. 4, 2005. Colgan will fly six United Express markets currently operated by Shuttle America from Dulles to Allentown, Pa.; Binghamton, N.Y.; Charleston, W. Va.; Charlottesville, Va.; State College, Pa. and White Plains, N.Y."

and by far the most interesting part of the release

"According to the terms of the pro rate agreement, operating costs will be paid by Colgan Air while a portion of the revenue from connecting passengers will be shared between United Airlines and Colgan Air."

It looks like UA might be stepping away from "Fee Per Departure" pricing on some express routes.


Busy day for UAX today!

Still can't beat the grandaddy of them all, MEM-TRI on XJ, with a block time of 2 hours 12 mins and a distance of almost 500 miles.
