USAIR FILES WITH U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO PROVIDE SERVICE TO GRAND CAYMAN FROM CHARLOTTE AND TAMPA

 ARLINGTON, Va., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir has applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide new nonstop international service between Grand Cayman and both Charlotte and Tampa as early as November 1993.
 USAir proposes to provide roundtrip service four days a week between Tampa and Grand Cayman and roundtrip service three days a week between its major Charlotte hub and Grand Cayman using Boeing 727-200 aircraft.
 "USAir believes rapid tourism development over the past several years has positioned the Cayman Islands as a major, upscale leisure destination," said Robert L. Fornaro, senior vice president, planning. "We want to take advantage of this growth potential and offer Grand Cayman as a new destination on the USAir system."
 Fornaro explained that "USAir is the number one carrier in terms of daily departures at Tampa International Airport and Tampa is a very good connecting point for flowing international traffic to/from other points on the USAir system." Within the past few weeks, USAir also filed with the Department of Transportation to provide daily nonstop service from Tampa and Philadelphia to Mexico City.
 Charlotte was selected, Fornaro said, "because it is USAir's cornerstone in the Southeast, one of USAir's two largest hubs, and offers more than 465 daily departures on USAir and USAir Express." He said Charlotte offers "tremendous connecting possibilities for customers across the system, particularly from the Northeast and the Southeast, to travel to Grand Cayman on USAir."
 USAir said the service it seeks to offer is permitted under the existing U.S./Cayman Islands bilateral treaty.
