Fayetteville's regional airport is gaining access to the nation's capital.

US Airways is providing customers with daily, nonstop service from Fayetteville Regional Airport to Washington's Reagan National Airport.

The airline announced Tuesday that it is adding the service following the closing of its slot transaction agreement with Delta Air Lines.

The new flight, which begins March 25, is the next step in US Airways' plan to focus on its core service areas of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Phoenix and Charlotte, N.C., according to the company.

US Airways Express partner Air Wisconsin will operate service to Fayetteville on 50-passenger Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ200) aircraft.

Customers in Fayetteville and military personnel at Fort Bragg will have nonstop service to Washington, D.C.'s downtown airport every morning at 5:30 a.m. Customers will also be able to fly into Fayetteville from Washington every evening around 7:55 p.m.

To support the expanded service, US Airways will add more gates at Reagan National build a second US Airways Club near its new departure gates and will hire approximately 125 airport customer service and fleet service employees.
