USAirways to Add 150 Workers

The fortunes of USAirways continues to improve ever since the company merged with America West and emerged from bankruptcy protection in 2005.

To that end, the airline is expanding its Reno, NV reservations call center by 150 employees adding to the 200 workers already employed at the facility. Most of the new positions had previously been outsourced by the airline; the move is a bid by USAirways to bring its reservation system back in-house.

America West purchased USAirways in 2005, jettisoning its own name in favor of USAirways.

MAF Heads For Idaho

A long time Redlands, California evangelistic organization, the Missionary Aviation Fellowship, will be leaving “the city of churches” for cheaper pastures in Idaho.

Citing the growing expense and burden of maintaining operations in California, the missionary organization will be relocating to Nampa, Idaho in a bid to cut costs. Indeed, missionary leaders have calculated that the organization can save as much as $800,000 in operating costs annually by making the move to Idaho. The organization has purchased nine acres in Nampa and is leasing another nine acres from the city.

Missionary Aviation Fellowship {MAF} operates 56 aircraft in 16 countries with three airplanes currently based in Redlands. The organization is noted for its members sharing their faith in Jesus Christ in word as well as in deed. MAF is presently very active in providing earthquake relief assistance in Pakistan.

Ryanair Socks Bag Fee To Pax

Ryanair, Ireland’s budget airline, is causing quite a bit of controversy with its plan to start charging passengers a check-in fee.

To be implemented in March, the Euro$2.50 fee will be assessed to passengers who bring more than one light bag with them on a flight.

BTW, the airline is hiring pilots, cabin crew, engineers, and sales staff.
