The DOT has granted US Airways two within-perimeter slot exemptions to use for daily roundtrip DCA-SRQ service.
During the high (winter) season, US will use the EMB-190 on the route on weekdays, and the A319 on the route on weekends. During the low (summer) season, USX/Republic will use the EMB-170 on the route on weekdays, and US will use the EMB-190 on the route on weekends.
These slot exemptions were returned to the DOT by NK after having been used for DCA-MYR service.
OH had filed a competing application for DCA-SAV service in this proceeding. FL filed an application for DCA-IND/MDW service that was not considered by the DOT due to IND/MDW not being eligible airports for this type of slot exemption.
The order is available at http://dmses.dot.gov/docimages/pdf96/401343_web.pdf.
