USAIR AND STATESWEST REACH AN AGREEMENT

 ARLINGTON, Va., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir of Arlington and StatesWest Airlines of Phoenix have reached agreement on procedures for mutual termination of the marketing affiliation the two companies now have. The agreement has been approved by the federal court handling the StatesWest Chapter 11 reorganization case.
 StatesWest provides USAir Express service on the West Coast for USAir and is one of the 11 USAir Express carriers nationwide.
 USAir had previously announced that it would terminate its affiliation with StatesWest effective June 8. Under the terms of this new agreement, the termination date now will be midnight on Jan. 15, 1994. StatesWest will continue to operate as a USAir Express carrier and provide USAir Express service until that time.
 USAir will announce a West Coast replacement USAir Express carrier in the fall. The replacement carrier will begin service after Jan. 15, 1994.
 StatesWest may initiate an affiliation with another major carrier starting on Oct. 1, 1993, and operate as a duel code-sharing carrier from Dec. 1, 1993, until Jan. 15, 1994. StatesWest has informed USAir that it is presently in discussions with both Northwest Airlines, with whom it currently has a code-sharing agreement, to feed the Pacific Rim, and Continental Airlines.
 StatesWest may voluntarily terminate the modified service agreement prior to Jan. 15, 1994, provided StatesWest gives 120-day written notice.
 StatesWest is the 24th largest regional airline in the United States and currently operates approximately 4,000 monthly USAir Express departures, feeding traffic to Los Angeles and San Francisco from 12 western cities.
