Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell on June 11, 2003 offered US Airways Inc. a five-year, 263.9 million dollars aid package in an effort to persuade the airline to maintain hubs at Pittsburgh International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport, said a spokeswoman for Senator Rick Santorum. The offer was made during a 90-minute meeting between US Airways executives and Pennsylvania officials gathered in Washington, D.C., in what is likely to be the first of several talks between the two parties. US Airways spokesman David Castelveter declined to comment on Rendell's offer, but said that the carrier looks forward to working with Pennsylvania officials to reach an agreement during upcoming discussions.
