PSA Airlines pilots have ratified a new five-year contract with the regional carrier.

The US Airways-subsidiary's 515 pilots voted 78% for and 22% against the contract, according to the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA). About 80% of eligible pilots cast votes for the agreement that begins on 1 April.

"We are very pleased that the professional pilots of PSA have voted to ratify the new collective bargaining agreement that recognises their contribution to PSA," says Keith Houk, president and chief executive of PSA, in a statement.

The airline flies Bombardier CRJ200s and CRJ700s as US Airways Express with bases in Charlotte, Dayton and Knoxville.
