US Airways plans to launch five new routes from Washington National airport from July, and will boost the frequency of flights between the US capital and Valparaiso.

The carrier will begin flights to Augusta, Fayetteville (Arkansas), Minneapolis, Montreal, and Toronto, say reports. A carrier spokeswoman could not confirm the new routes, saying that the airline plans to announce new service from Washington National in the coming days.

US Airways will also increase to twice daily its planned once-daily flight to Valparaiso, which is scheduled to begin later this month.

Several carriers, including Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, operate nonstop between Washington National and Minneapolis. Air Canada operates to both Montreal and Toronto from Washington National, schedules in Innovata show.

Late last year, Delta and US Airways concluded a slot swap, which resulted in US Airways acquiring 42 slot pairs at Washington National. It has been progressively announcing new services from the airport.
