US Airways will take over three of United Airlines' gates on the central pier at Ronald Reagan Washington National airport overnight on 10 July, to accommodate new flights from its slot swap with Delta Air Lines.

The Tempe, Arizona-based airline will take over gates 27, 29 and 31 from United, which will in turn consolidate its operations at the airport in the south pier. It already uses the entire north pier and gates 23 to 26 in the central pier.

United will take over gates 14 and 16 in the south pier from Delta. It already uses gates 10, 11 and 12 in the concourse.

US Airways will also open a new US Airways club in the central pier.

The carrier acquired 42 slot pairs at National from Delta in return for 132 slot pairs at New York's LaGuardia airport. The deal closed in December 2011.
