US Airways to expand service to N.H.

US Airways is expanding its service to New Hampshire.

Next month, the airline will add flights from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, according to an airport press release.

Beginning April 9, two daily flights will travel between Manchester and Charlotte, N.C., and with four roundtrip flights between Washington, D.C., and Manchester. US Airways currently offers one flight to Charlotte and three flights to Washington, D.C.

“We are very excited that US Airways has increased its investment in Manchester,” airport Director Mark Brewer said in the release. “The additional flights to key hubs in Washington and Charlotte will increase the number of potential travel options for both business and leisure travelers.”

A previous version of this article misstated the number of daily flights between Manchester to Charlotte and Manchester to Washignton, D.C. There will be two flights to Charlotte and four flights to Washinton, D.C.

Here is the deal wih the airlines at Manchester Airport. There are few flights. And the few they have, the fares are so high, it would be cheaper to fly out of Boston and get a limo to drive you to Boston. Not enough direct flights. They cannot compete with Boston price wise or choice of flights. Manchester is a terrific airport on a lot of levels. But they charge too much for their flights. The only airline that probably makes a profit there is Southwest. US is smart to increase flights to WA and Charlotte, but most folks are looking to Boston for cheaper flights and more nonstops.

This should be corrected to read that there will be two flights per day to Charlotte and 4 to Washington.
