PSA Airlines announced that it plans to open two additional crew bases at Philadelphia International Airport and Norfolk International Airport in May 2018.
With the Philadelphia and Norfolk additions, PSA will have seven crew bases, joining Dayton, Ohio; Cincinnati, Ohio; Knoxville, Tennessee, Washington, D.C. and Charlotte, North Carolina.
“This is exciting news for PSA as we grow our operations and make smart additions to our network of crew bases to ensure top-notch performance for our customers,” said Keith Stamper – Vice President, Air Operations – PSA Airlines. “Today’s announcement is important for our employees as we grow our crew base footprint and provide more options for the best aviators in the business.”
As a major hub for its parent company, American Airlines, Philadelphia International Airport is a well-supported market for PSA and makes for a strategic addition to its crew base portfolio. PSA currently operates 21 departures at PHL and that number will grow to 44 departures in May 2018. Adding a crew base where PSA has an overnight maintenance base in Norfolk, allows for streamlined operations and is a natural addition for crews to be based. The airline will offer seven daily departures from Norfolk International Airport in May 2018.
PSA Airlines operates an all-jet fleet consisting of exclusively Bombardier regional jet aircraft. The company’s 3,500 employees operate more than 750 daily flights to more than 90 destinations.
