Recently merged US Airways is trying to facilitate travel for passengers who want to make adjustments to their reservations for same-day travel.
Called Move Up, the program allows customers to skip the standby list for a small charge.
Once a customer has arrived at the check-in desk they can request an earlier flight. If space is available they can reserve a seat that will cost them an additional $25 for domestic flights and $50 for international routes.
Vice president of sales and marketing at US Airways, Travis Christ, said the program was designed to keep business and leisure travel customer-friendly.
He said: “Customer schedules don’t always conform to airline schedules. Our Move Up program allows customers to enjoy the peace of mind of a confirmed change on available flights for a very low price.”
US Airways runs over 4,000 flights every day to 225 destinations around the world.
