Airline Moves at Airports

Airlines are on the move this year. As American and U.S. Airways continue their merger integration, changes are happening at airports around the country and beyond.

The airline recently announced that in American’s Miami hub, U.S. Airways has co-located from Concourse J to join the American Airlines operation on Concourse D. At US Airways’ Phoenix hub, American Airlines will moved its gates from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4, where U.S. Airways is located.

Since United Airlines and Continental merged back in 2010, they have maintained operations at both Terminals 1 and 4 at London Heathrow.  When the new Terminal 2 – The Queen’s Terminal - opens in June of this year, United Airlines will be moving all of its operations there. This move ends the last of the split terminal operations for the airline which completed the rest of its merger steps some time ago.
