ILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Some of our area's frequent fliers will have the chance to fly high in first class.

US Airways is adding first class service to 110 of its regional jets, including ones that fly out of Wilmington International Airport.

US Airways will install first class on the Embraer 170 and 175 and Canadair Regional Jet 700 and 900.

All of the planes will have first class seats added by the end of January 2012.

According to a press release from US Airways, the seats will offer "generous legroom and personal space".

US Airways said the upgrades will mean that the airline has the highest percentage of daily departures with a first class cabin among the four major network carriers.

"With the installation of First Class on US Airways' Express partner aircraft we're able to offer our First Class customers seamless, same-class service to the more than 85 destinations these aircraft serve," said Andrew Nocella, senior vice president marketing and planning, US Airways. "This will also offer our Dividend Miles Preferred members complimentary upgrades on nearly 640 more flights each day."

The first class customers will also be able to take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Priority check-in
  • Priority security lines (where available)
  • Early boarding
  • A dedicated cabin
  • A larger seat with increased legroom
  • Complimentary alcoholic beverages
  • Complimentary snacks
  • Complimentary pillows and blankets
  • Priority baggage handling

"US Airways Express serves a very important role for our airline and our customers," said Dion Flannery, president, US Airways Express. "By working with our partners PSA, Mesa and Republic Airways, we're now able to provide the level of service and comfort our First Class passengers desire while connecting them to mainline flights in our hub cities."
