USAir said Thursday that it has concluded a marketing agreement with StatesWest Airlines to serve several new routes on the West Coast, including Los Angeles-Bakersfield and Los Angeles-Santa Barbara.

Instead, they rely on commuter airlines which now handle much of the major airlines short-haul traffic.
