US Airways wins FAA certification

September 27, 2007|From Times Wire Services

US Airways Group Inc., created in a 2005 merger with America West Holdings Corp., gained official recognition as a single airline from U.S. regulators.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a single operating certificate to the Tempe, Ariz.-based carrier. Work toward the unified certificate began shortly after the two airlines combined two years ago.

The airline still must negotiate single labor contracts with unions for its pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and ground workers before it can fully integrate operations.
