Later this year passengers will be able to catch connecting flights to Rio de Janeiro with US Airways when the carrier launches a new service from its hub in Charlotte, North Carolina. The airline will begin operations to the city on December 2nd subject to the approval of the Brazilian government. The service will represent US Airways' first connection to South America and its fifth new international route this year. People travelling from the UK will be able to catch flights from London to Charlotte to connect to the new route to Rio De Janeiro. 'This new flight offers business and leisure travellers throughout the United States [an] easy, one-stop connecting service to Brazil,' said Suzanne Boda, the airline's vice-president of international operations. Earlier this month, US Airways increased its range of services to the UK with new flights from Birmingham to Philadelphia.
