US Airways says it will begin adding flights to Barbados from Philadelphia International Airport, beginning Oct. 1.

Philadelphia's dominant carrier said it would begin with four flights a week there (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), then offer daily flights for the winter season, beginning Dec. 19.

The airline said that, once this service was started, it would offer an average of 109 weekly nonstop flights to 14 Caribbean destinations during the peak season to travel there.

Tickets for those flights will go on sale Sunday.
