TEMPE, Ariz., Jan. 12, 2009 - Beginning Jan. 25, US Airways (NYSE:LCC) customers in northeast Ohio will have a new, nonstop link to Washington, D.C., thanks to US Airways Express service from Akron-Canton Airport to Washington's preferred business and leisure airport – Ronald Reagan Washington National. Flights will operate daily by US Airways Express carrier Air Wisconsin using 50-seat CRJ200 jet aircraft.
