With the PHL and ORF 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, PHL 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 ORF, allows for streamlined operations and is a natural addition for crews to be based. The airline will offer seven daily departures from ORF in May 2018.
