BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A direct flight from Bangor to Washington, D.C., will remain in place following the merger of U.S. Airways and American Airlines.

Both the Bangor International Airport and Portland International Jetport have direct flights to Washington, and Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King say they’ll remain in place after the merger.

Bangor’s airport director says that’s good news for travelers trying to get to more destinations. Tony Caruso tells WABI-TV that the merger also opens up additional travel options through the American network.

Caruso says the merger process is expected to take up to a year as both companies combine their equipment and workers. The new company will operate under the American Airlines name.
