GORDON LINKON TO RETIRE AS USAIR SHUTTLE PRESIDENT, CEO; TERRY HALLCOM NAMED SUCCESSOR

 ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Gordon Linkon will retire as president and CEO of the USAir Shuttle effective Aug. 23 and will be succeeded by Terry Hallcom, currently vice president-operations.
 Linkon has been president and CEO since USAir took over daily operations of the USAir Shuttle in 1992 under a management agreement with its owners, a consortium of banks.
 Prior to that he was vice president of the USAir Express Division of USAir Group (NYSE: U). Before joining USAir Group, Linkon was president, chairman and CEO of Florida Express, and, earlier, was president of Midway Airlines and vice president-marketing for the former Frontier Airlines.
 "Under Mr. Linkon's leadership the USAir Shuttle has steadily increased its share of the important Washington, New York and Boston Shuttle markets and has positioned the airline to be a long-term viable competitor," said USAir Chairman, President and CEO Seth E. Schofield.
 "Mr. Hallcom has extensive experience in shuttle operations, both with the USAir Shuttle and its predecessor, and is extremely well qualified to head the company."
 Hallcom is a veteran of more than 30 years in aviation and 23 years in the air transport industry.
