TRAVEL MANAGERS APPLAUD DOT DECISION AND WELCOME COMPETITION

 WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Business Travel Association declared its support for Transportation Secretary Pena's announcement to seek a new bilateral agreement with Great Britain and recognizes the value of British Airways' proposed three-phase investment in USAir.
 "It is in the interest of all carriers and business travelers to fully explore the market-access advantages of a new bilateral agreement further emphasizing open skies with Great Britain," said NBTA President John Hintz. "Yet it is also in the best interests of corporate America to foster healthier competition among the nation's airlines. The three- phase investment program in USAir by British Airways will certainly help maintain the viability of a major carrier, essential to the fragile competitive balance of US carriers, while the first phase remains within the parameters defined by the US citizenship law for airlines."
 Based in Washington, the National Business Travel Association represents more than 1,500 major US firms with a combined total of $130 billion in annual corporate travel expenditures.
