USAIR ANNOUNCES NEW LOW FARE PROGRAM TO BEGIN OCT. 1

 ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- New low, one-way and roundtrip air fares between a number of cities in the eastern United States, including Florida, are being offered by USAir. Similar fares will become effective in many other markets on Oct. 1.
 "Scheduled airline service is one of the most competitive industries in the world and USAir has been challenged in several of its traditional markets, a challenge to which we are vigorously responding," said USAir Senior Vice President-Planning Robert L. Fornaro.
 "Contrary to our newest competitor in these markets, USAir will offer the full range of normal airline amenities on all flights, including meals when appropriate. We will also award frequent flyer mileage credit to passengers using any of our new fares."
 The USAir fare program will be offered in three basic categories:
 1 -- First is in markets where USAir offers nonstop or connecting service between two points such as Baltimore/Washington International Airport and Greensboro, N.C. Fares in this market will range from $34.50 for one-way travel on Saturdays and Sundays only, to $69 unrestricted one-way.
 2 -- In secondary markets where customers have the option of using a nearby airport, fares will also be lower. An example is Washington to Greensboro. Fares will range from $84.50 for one-way Saturday and Sunday only to $169 for unrestricted one-way travel.
 3 -- Fares have also been lowered in markets where USAir offers a higher quality nonstop service against a competitor's connecting service such as Baltimore/Washington International to Atlanta. Saturday and Sunday only one-way fare will be $114.50 in this market while the unrestricted one-way fare will be $159.
 Unrestricted one-way fares in all markets may be upgraded from Coach to First Class for $30 in markets of 0-500 miles and $60 in markets from 500-1,000 miles.
