USAIR TO BEGIN FLORIDA SHUTTLE FEB. 1

 ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 1 ~PRNewswire~ -- All USAir and USAir Express service within the state of Florida will be operated under the new USAir Florida Shuttle brand name beginning Feb. 1. A key feature of the USAir Florida Shuttle will be new hourly flights between Miami and Tampa and Miami and Orlando.
 USAir Florida Shuttle flights will total 330 daily departures on Feb. 1, up 10 percent from today's total of 300 intra-Florida flights. In addition, USAir will operate 221 daily flights from Florida to other cities throughout the United States, which is an 11 percent increase from the 199 daily departures being offered today. Thus, overall total daily departures from Florida will increase from 499 to 551, up 10 percent, on Feb. 1.
 "The USAir Florida Shuttle marks an important enhancement of our marketing presence in Florida and illustrates our continuing commitment to build on our strengths and provide new opportunities for our Florida Frequent Traveler Program members," said USAir Chairman and President Seth E. Schofield.
 "As the number one airline in the state of Florida, we have the ability to offer same day, out and back service in most USAir intra- Florida markets," Schofield emphasized. "In fact, we offer the most departures to the most Florida cities."
 Schofield added that USAir contributes $3.2 billion annually to the Florida economy through direct and indirect expenditures and visitor spending.
 USAir will offer special benefits, bonus miles and upgrades to its Florida Frequent Travelers through the new USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Any member of USAir's Frequent Traveler Program living in the state of Florida who flies at least five intra-Florida trips during 1993 will qualify for membership in the new USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Between now and Jan. 31, 1993, USAir is offering a special introductory enrollment promotion. Floridian Frequent Traveler Program members who fly just two intra-Florida trips will be automatically enrolled in the USAir Florida Shuttle Club. Further details on this new frequent flier program will be announced in January.
 The new hourly flights between Miami and Orlando will depart every hour on the hour in each direction from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.
 Between Miami and Tampa the new hourly service will depart every hour on the half hour in each direction from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.
 The hourly service in these markets will be operated with a mixture of jet aircraft and 37-passenger DeHavilland Dash 8s.
