With this new addition, our passengers now have access to four Star Alliance members, including US Airways”

“US Airways customers and members of the Philadelphia community and surrounding areas continue to benefit from our development of our northeast hub with this new service to beautiful Quebec City,” said Suzanne Boda, US Airways’ senior vice president of airport customer service, international and cargo. “Customers traveling from Quebec City will now have access to 111 domestic and international destinations through Philadelphia, where US Airways has expanded its service to 456 peak day departures.”
