Information: US Airways is an airline based in Tempe, Arizona, owned by US Airways Group, Inc. As of May 2006, the airline is the sixth largest airline in the United States. Including aircraft operated by its America West Airlines affiliate, US Airways has a fleet of 357 mainline jet aircraft and 352 express aircraft connecting 240 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Europe. US Airways currently employs 35,180 people worldwide and operates 3,860 flights worldwide daily.

The airline was acquired by America West Holdings Corporation in late 2005. Operations are expected to be fully integrated with America West Airlines by 2007 after government approval allowing the airlines to operate under a single operating certificate. Until this happens, the former America West aircraft and destinations are operated under a separate certificate and by separate crews, but the flights are marketed and sold as US Airways. Checkin counters are still maintained for both US Airways and America West.
