US Airways (NYSE: LCC) customers will have more ways to experience “la dolce vita” when the airline begins daily, year-round nonstop service to Rome from Charlotte, North Carolina, on May 13, 2010.
The new flight will complement US Airways’ daily nonstop service to Rome from Philadelphia, the airline’s international gateway. It will be operated with Airbus A330-300 aircraft with seating for 29 in Envoy, US Airways’ trans-Atlantic business class, and 259 in the main cabin.

Our new service from Charlotte will offer our customers throughout the southeastern United States another convenient option for traveling to the Eternal City.”
