USAIR TO BEGIN SERVICE TO ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS, FROM BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

 BALTIMORE, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir will inaugurate new service from Baltimore/Washington International Airport to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands starting Nov. 10, 1993. This is USAir's first entry into the U.S. Virgin Islands market.
 USAir will operate the new daily roundtrip service with Boeing 727- 200 jet aircraft, offering 143 coach and eight first-class seats. The flight from BWI to St. Thomas will be nonstop. It will then continue on from St. Thomas to San Juan. The return flight from St. Thomas will be a direct flight to BWI, stopping briefly in San Juan.
 In addition to providing BWI-area travelers with new daily service to the U.S. Virgin Islands, this new flight will restore daily direct service on USAir from BWI to San Juan.
 "New service to the U.S. Virgin Islands demonstrates USAir's increasing presence in the Caribbean, provides an exciting new destination for travel on the USAir system and demonstrates our continuing commitment to the Baltimore/Washington International Airport hub," said Brian M. Dwyer, USAir vice president-sales. "BWI is a strong hub, and we believe it will provide convenient access to the Virgin Islands for BWI/Washington-area passengers.
 "USAir has been looking at the possibility of new U.S. Virgin Island service for some time. In addition to this new BWI service, we are evaluating potential St. Thomas service for other USAir cities, although we have nothing further to announce at this time," said Dwyer.
 The new flight will depart BWI at 8:45 a.m., arriving St. Thomas at 1:30 p.m. Passengers wishing to continue on to San Juan will depart on the same aircraft at 2:30 p.m., arriving San Juan at 3:07 p.m.
 On the return, the new flight will depart St. Thomas at 2:30 p.m., arriving San Juan at 3:07 p.m. After a brief stop, the flight will continue to BWI, arriving at 7:02 p.m.
 USAir has more daily departures in the metropolitan Washington area than any other carrier. USAir also is the largest airline at Baltimore/Washington International Airport, one of the Washington area's three major airports. At BWI, a major USAir hub, there are 91 USAir jet and 91 USAir Express daily departures.
 USAir currently operates Caribbean service from several U.S. cities to Nassau in the Bahamas and San Juan, Puerto Rico. USAir Express provides service to the family islands of the Bahamas. USAir also recently announced plans to provide jet service to Grand Cayman.
