US Airways has promoted Brad Beakley to VP of reservations and inventory services and Tom Trenga to VP of revenue management.

Both most recently served as managing director of revenue management, with Beakley at US Airways and Trenga at merger partner America West Airlines.

Beakley, as VP of reservations and inventory services, is responsible for airport operations, front line reservations, and revenue management.

Prior to joining US Airways in 2003, he held revenue management positions at American Airlines, and units of its parent company AMR.

He replaces Kerry Carstairs, who last week left after seven years of service with US Airways. No reason is given for her departure.

Trenga, who joined America West in 1996, is now responsible for pricing and tariffs, yield management and revenue analysis.

He fills the vacancy left by last summer’s retirement of Scott Bowers from America West after 17 years.

Bowers’ vacant role (there was no reciprocal role at US Airways) was covered by middle management during the merger process until today’s announcement of Trenga’s promotion, says a US Airways spokeswoman.

“We are extremely fortunate to have a strong team comprised of employees from both the former America West and US Airways who possess broad experience and the ability to take on larger roles,” says executive VP for sales and marketing Scott Kirby in a statement.

“Both of these executives bring technical expertise to their respective areas of responsibility as well as a high level of excitement for the new US Airways,” he adds.
