 USAIR EXPRESS TO INCREASE CAPACITY IN JOHNSTOWN MARKET
 ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir Express will introduce larger aircraft on some of its Johnstown-to-Pittsburgh flights, starting Jan. 7. This will increase seats available for sale in the market from 133 to 186 daily -- a capacity increase of almost 40 percent.
 USAir Express, operated by Pennsylvania Airlines of Harrisburg, Pa., currently has seven roundtrip flights per day using 19-passenger Beech 1900 aircraft. Under the new schedule, USAir Express will operate six roundtrip flights per day, two with the 19-passenger aircraft and four with 37-passenger Boeing deHavilland DASH-8 aircraft.
 "USAir Express operated a single DASH-8 flight at Johnstown from Jan. 8 through May 1 of this year and we are pleased to bring the DASH-8 back to Johnstown with more frequency," said William Clark, president and CEO, Pennsylvania Airlines. "The DASH-8 is a high-tech aircraft offering that will offer local Johnstown area passengers the comfort of a stand-up cabin, overhead storage bins, two-by-two seating on both sides of a center aisle, a front galley and a lavatory."
 Clark also said the DASH-8 features state-of-the-art avionics and navigation equipment, as well as a TCAS (traffic alert and collision avoidance) system. Crew includes a captain, first officer and flight attendant.
 Under the new schedule, the DASH-8 will be used on the 11:20 a.m., 3:30 p.m., 5:40 p.m. and 7:50 p.m. departures to Pittsburgh. The first two departures of the day at 6:40 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. will continue to be operated with Beech 1900 aircraft.
