 USAIR GROUP SELECTS GORDON LINKON
 AS PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NEW USAIR SHUTTLE
 ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir Group (NYSE: U) has selected Gordon Linkon as president and chief executive officer for the new USAir Shuttle. USAir expects to begin management of the shuttle in March.
 Linkon will have total operational and management responsibility for the hourly Boston-New York-Washington USAir Shuttle. His offices will be located at LaGuardia Airport in New York. Linkon is currently vice president of the USAir Express division for USAir Group.
 "Under Gordon Linkon's management, the nationwide USAir Express network has grown from 1,400 daily departures to more than 2,100 today," said Seth E. Schofield, president and CEO of USAir Group. "Gordon also has senior management experience with other major airlines including strong skills in service start-up, marketing and operations. He is uniquely qualified to manage the USAir Shuttle, and to provide the quality service and on-time performance passengers have come to expect from The Trump Shuttle."
 USAir announced in late December that it had reached an agreement in principle with the Trump Organization and the Trump creditors to manage the hourly shuttle for up to 10 years, with an option to purchase the shuttle in five years. The shuttle will be renamed the USAir shuttle.
 Linkon has served as vice president-USAir Express division for USAir since September 1988. As such, he has responsibility for the operation of four regional airlines that operate as wholly owned subsidiaries of USAir's parent company, USAir Group, and for liaison with eight other regional airlines which have contractual arrangements with USAir. A successor for Linkon at USAir Express will be named shortly.
 Prior to joining USAir, Linkon was president, chairman and CEO of Florida Express, which was later purchased by a major carrier. He also served as president of Midway Airlines in its early years and as vice president-marketing for Frontier Airlines.
 A native of Illinois, Linkon is a graduate of Northwestern University School of Speech and holds a J.D. degree from the Northwestern University School of Law.
