The company will also provide USD360m in financing once the carrier emerges from bankruptcy and another USD350m of equity to start up leases on regional jets. In return, GE Capital will receive up to a 5% stake in US Airways along with 3.6m shares of preferred stock.

The agreement was approved by Judge Stephen Mitchell of the US Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia yesterday (16 January), reported Reuters.
