US Airways, completing its $285 million purchase of the Boston-New York-Washington shuttle from a consortium of banks, said it plans to expand service to include non-stop flights between Boston and Washington's National Airport.
Aircraft for the new shuttle flights will be repainted and moved to the new terminal at National Airport in February and to a renovated terminal in Boston this summer.
US Airways, then called USAir, took over the former Trump Shuttle in 1992 with an option to eventually buy it. The deal was completed Tuesday.
The US Airways Shuttle now flies 15 round trips daily between Washington National Airport and New York's LaGuardia Airport, and 17 daily round trips between LaGuardia and Boston's Logan International Airport.
