NEW SHORT-HAUL SERVICE PRODUCT OUTLINED BY USAIR CHAIRMAN

 ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir today announced a significant step in the ultimate redesign of its short-haul service.
 The plan is keyed on sharply increasing utilization of personnel, aircraft and ground facilities by reducing ground times nearly in half in a number of city-pair markets under 500 miles, beginning Feb. 16, 1994.
 USAir Chairman, President and CEO Seth E. Schofield called the move "a scheduling adjustment that will significantly reduce operating costs in short-haul markets, while providing levels of service that our customers have told us they want."
 After several months of operation in the initial city-pair markets, the new short-haul service will be expanded to other similar markets throughout the USAir route system.
 The scheduling adjustments will result in a reduction in aircraft ground times from about 45 minutes to as low as 25 minutes in short-haul markets and will increase productivity and provide cost savings through more efficient use of employees, aircraft and facilities, Schofield noted.
 Additionally, he stressed that during 1993 USAir conducted extensive research with its customers to determine ways to enhance its service product and provide good value for price.
 Savings realized through the restructured short-haul service continues a series of steps taken by USAir to reduce operating costs in an extremely competitive environment.
 Schofield said USAir will introduce additional changes in its short- haul service, as well as pricing initiatives and an enhanced domestic and transatlantic long-haul product, in several stages during 1994. Additional details on these programs, including specific markets, will be forthcoming closer to implementation.
