CCAIR ANNOUNCES GROWTH PLAN

 CCAIR ANNOUNCES GROWTH PLAN
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- CCAIR, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCAR),


an independent airline providing service as USAir Express in the Southeast United States, today announced details of its growth plan to be implemented this summer.
 On June 1, 1992, CCAIR will add four 37-passenger Boeing de Havilland Dash-8 propjet aircraft to its existing fleet of 21 turboprop aircraft. The Dash-8 aircraft is the newest, most modern aircraft in the CCAIR fleet and features state-of-the-art avionics and navigation equipment. The aircraft offers passengers the comfort of a stand-up cabin, overhead storage bins, two-by-two seating on both sides of a center aisle, front galley and lavatory. Crew members include a Captain, First Officer and Flight Attendant.
 Management estimates that annual revenue will increase $18 million or 33 percent with the introduction of the expanded fleet and the revised service schedule.
 Two new markets, Evansville, Ind., and Montgomery, Ala., will have two Dash-8 round trips each from the Charlotte, N.C., hub. Two existing markets, Kinston, N.C., and Huntington, W. Va., will have Dash-8 flights where USAir discontinued jet service to Charlotte. Kinston will have four Dash-8 round trips in addition to two existing round trips with CCAir's smaller aircraft to Charlotte. Huntington will have two Dash-8 round trips in addition to three existing round trips with CCAIR's smaller aircraft to Charlotte. Raleigh, N.C., and Greenville, N.C., will also have a round trip flight added from Charlotte with Dash-8 aircraft.
 Shenandoah Valley, Va., will be added to the system from both Charlotte and Baltimore, Md., with two round trips to Charlotte and three round trips to Baltimore. The flights will be operated with Jetstream 31 aircraft that were redeployed from existing markets.
 Effective July 1, 1992, additional Dash-8 service will be introduced from Charlotte to a new market, Charleston, W. Va., and to existing markets: Asheville, N.C., Augusta, Ga., Greenville, N.C., and Wilmington, N.C., from Charlotte. Columbia, S.C., will receive two new round trips from Charlotte with Shorts 360-300 aircraft.
 With the new service, CCAIR will serve 28 cities in 10 states utilizing 25 aircraft.
