US Airways awarded vacant slot to continue nonstop round-trip flights to Jackson
US Airways will continue to operate its nonstop round-trip flights to Jackson. The airline was recently awarded the vacant slot at Ronald Reagan National Airport.
US Airways recently announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation has refused to allot the vacant slot to Southwest Airlines at Ronald Regan National Airport at Washington D.C.
The vacant slot was awarded to US Airways as Southwest Airlines lost its bid for the proposed nonstop flights to Washington D.C.’s Ronald Reagan National Airport from Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport.
After being granted vacant slot by the U.S. Department of Transportation, US Airways will now continue selling air tickets and operate flights to Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.
The vacant slot bid at Ronald Regan National Airport was also lost by Frontier Airlines, which wanted to offer nonstop flights services to Louisville.
With Delta Air Lines discontinuing its flights services between Washington and Jackson in March this year, its slot at Ronald Reagan National Airport fell vacant. US Airways has now been temporarily allotted the vacant slot until a permanent decision is made.
