US Airways has rolled out a special policy for customers affected by Independence Air`s announced suspension of service. Beginning Thursday, Jan. 5 – the effective date of service discontinuation – for a one-way, nonrefundable local customers in the Washington, D.C. area ticketed for travel on Independence Air to/from Washington Dulles may travel standby on US Airways flights between the same destination/origin or co-terminal, using Washington Reagan – where US Airways operates nearly 200 departures per day to approximately 50 destinations – Washington Dulles or Baltimore/Washington Marshall Airport.



In addition, connecting customers may travel to/from the same destination/origination or co-terminal as ticketed with Independence Air using any valid US Airways connecting points. Bookings and the fee will be processed at airport ticket counters.



Since standby travel is subject to flight loads, customers may want to secure confirmed reservations by purchasing confirmed tickets on US Airways. With this in mind, US Airways is offering customers affected by the shutdown the opportunity to purchase a confirmed ticket each way.



Tickets will be available for this special fare beginning Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2006 and travel under the special confirmed-space offer must be completed by Jan. 31, 2006. Travel under the standby provisions will be offered through March 6, 2006. Customers must show proof of purchase on Independence Air to take advantage of the confirmed-space offer or the standby fee.



Proof may include an e-ticket confirmation letter, an e-ticket receipt, an e-ticket itinerary card or paper tickets printed by Independence Air. US Airways agents will not be able to accept photocopies. With high demand and many displaced passengers, US Airways encourages customers to take advantage of this opportunity to confirm their travel plans.
