Pa. officials ask US Airways to keep flight center



PITTSBURGH — Officials from Western Pennsylvania and Gov. Tom Corbett’s administration reportedly are talking to US Airways executives in an effort to keep the airline from moving 600 jobs from a suburban Pittsburgh flight operations center.
The airline plans an $11 billion merger with American Airlines that will produce the world’s biggest airline. As a result, US Airways says it might close the $32 million flight operations center and consolidate it with American’s larger facility in Dallas.
In 2007, US Airways accepted $4 million in state taxpayer grants and tax credits to open the center.
