USAIR ANNOUNCES NEW USAIR FLORIDA SHUTTLE INCLUDING HOURLY FLIGHTS FROM MIAMI TO TAMPA AND ORLANDO

 MIAMI, Dec. 1 ~PRNewswire~ -- USAir today announced that all USAir and USAir Express flights within the state of Florida will be operated under the new USAir Florida Shuttle brand name beginning Feb. 1. A key feature of the USAir Florida Shuttle will be new hourly flights between Miami and Tampa and Miami and Orlando.
 USAir Florida Shuttle flights in Miami will total 46 daily departures on Feb. 1, up sharply (53 percent) from today's total of 30 intra-Florida flights. In addition, USAir will operate 21 daily flights from Miami to other cities throughout the United States.
 "The USAir Florida Shuttle marks an important enhancement of our marketing presence in Florida and illustrates our continuing commitment to build on our strengths and provide new opportunities for our Florida Frequent Traveler Program members," said USAir Chairman and President Seth E. Schofield.
 "As the number one airline in the state of Florida, and the number two airline in Miami, we have the ability to offer same day, out and back service in most USAir intra-Florida markets," Schofield emphasized. "In fact, we offer the most departures to the most Florida cities."
 Schofield added that USAir contributes $507 million annually to the Miami economy and $3.2 billion to the overall economy of Florida through direct and indirect expenditures and visitor spending.
 USAir will offer special benefits, bonus miles and upgrades to its Florida Frequent Travelers through the new USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Any member of USAir's Frequent Traveler Program living in the state of Florida who flies at least five intra-Florida trips during 1993 will qualify for membership in the USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Between now and Jan. 31, 1993, USAir is offering a special introductory enrollment promotion. Floridian Frequent Traveler Program members who fly just two intra-state Florida trips will be automatically enrolled in the USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Further details on this new frequent flier program will be announced in January.
 The new hourly flights between Miami and Tampa will depart every hour on the half hour in each direction from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.
 Between Miami and Orlando, the new hourly service will depart every hour on the hour in each direction from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.
 The hourly service in these markets will be operated with a mixture of jet aircraft and 37-passenger DeHavilland Dash 8s.
 Passenger amenities for the hourly service will include special check-in counters and gate areas designated for USAir Florida Shuttle passengers in Tampa, Miami and Orlando; credit card ticketing for full fare passengers at the gates and complimentary newspapers for peak morning departures.
 The USAir Florida Shuttle passengers will depart from gate H-2 in the satellite terminal at Miami International Airport.
