 USAir LAUNCHES DAILY SERVICE FROM CHARLOTTE TO BERMUDA
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In another major step to build international travel from its North Carolina hub, USAir (NYSE: U) today launched daily round trip service between Charlotte/Douglas International Airport and Bermuda.
 Operated with 151-passenger Boeing 727s, the new nonstop flight to Bermuda will depart Charlotte at 11:18 a.m. and arrive at 2:45 p.m. The return flight will depart Bermuda at 12:30 p.m. and arrive here at 2:05 p.m.
 The first flight left Charlotte following a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception featuring dignitaries from USAir, Bermuda, the state of North Carolina and the city of Charlotte.
 Participating in the ribbon cutting festivities were Alan Best, Vice-President, Operations and Systems-MIS for USAir; C.V. "Jim" Woolridge, Bermuda Minister of Tourism; Dick Trammell, Executive Director of the Travel and Tourism Division for North Carolina, and Carroll Gray, President of the Greater Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.
 Richard Vinroot, Mayor of Charlotte, because of other commitments, was unable to attend. However, he provided a proclamation declaring May 1, 1992 as USAir Charlotte to Bermuda Day.
 "For some time now, USAir has wanted to build more international service out of Charlotte to complement our daily London and Frankfurt operations. Service to Bermuda is a welcome addition to our Charlotte schedule which totals almost 500 daily flights," noted Best.
