US airline reinstates summer flights from Bermuda

HAMILTON, Bermuda, February 26, 2009 – USA3000 Airlines has announced that the company will resume direct service from Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
 
The twice-weekly service from Bermuda to Baltimore will resume on June 11th, 2009 and will extend through the summer to August 16th, 2009.
 
USA3000 had ceased its Bermuda service for the duration of the 2008-2009 winter season.  
 
 “We recognised a very real interest in the Baltimore-Bermuda flight from our passengers,” said USA3000 CEO, Steve Harfst.  “The summer vacation season is an opportune time for us to return to such an important and popular route.”
 
Airline executives said they have worked closely with the Bermuda Department of Tourism and with the L. F. Wade International Airport to reinstate the service.
 
“USA3000 has been a critical component in our commitment to increased competition and lower prices for air travelers, particularly for vacationers who want to take the short trip to our pink sand beaches,” said Premier Dr Ewart Brown, who is also Minster of Tourism and Transport. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have USA3000 back as an air travel partner.”
 
USA3000 currently operates a fleet of 11 new A320 aircraft serving 13 cities including Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and St Louis, to destinations including Bermuda and other parts of the Caribbean.
