The US Airways recently launched new seasonal summer service to be operated daily between the airline’s hub at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Madrid (Spain) and Dublin (Ireland) to provide passenger more options to get to the two favorite European cities.
The Madrid service began from May 13, 2011. The flight will be operated with Boeing B767-200ER aircraft with seating for 18 in Envoy, US Airways’ international business class, and 186 in the main cabin.
The Dublin service started from May 14, 2011. The flight will be operated with Boeing B757-200 ETOPS aircraft with seating for 12 in Envoy and 164 in the main cabin.
