July 13, 2003 – US Airways has announced that members of its frequent flyer program can now earn and redeem miles on flights operated by Caribbean Star Airlines, a member of the GoCaribbean network.
Caribbean Star does not serves St. Thomas or St. Croix but it does fly to 13 other destinations in the region — Anguilla, Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Sint Maarten, St. Vincent, Tobago, Tortola and Trinidad.
Flights of less than 500 miles will receive awards of 500 miles, according to a release from USAir, which has daily flights to St. Thomas from Charlotte, North Carolina, and Saturday flights to St. Croix from Charlotte.
In a release, Douglas D. Leo, US Airways vice president, said USAir's Dividend Miles members "can now redeem their miles for travel to over 35 island destinations, clearly distinguishing US Airways as a premier carrier in the Caribbean."
"The Caribbean is one of the world's most beautiful regions," Paul Moreira, Caribbean Star chief executive, said, "and the partnership that US Airways and Caribbean Star have forged allows travelers to explore this region in a convenient and economical manner."
US Air, which serves 37 U.S. states, will add flights between Charlotte and Mexico City starting Oct. 26 and between both Charlotte and Philadelphia and San José, Costa Rica, on Nov. 8.
