Reuters: American Airlines Group Inc said its unit US Airways Group merged with the company, as part of efforts to integrate operations of the businesses following a merger in 2013.
American Airlines Group, the owner of American Airlines, said US Airways Group and its airline US Airways ceased to exist as a separate entity effective 30 December 2015.
The companies have already been using a single booking system and operating as a single brand since October.
The change is merely an administrative step and does not affect the company’s employees or customers, American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller told Reuters.
“With US Airways merged into American Airlines and US Airways Group merged into American Airlines Group, all of their obligations (including debts and liabilities) become the obligations of American Airlines and American Airlines Group, respectively,” Miller said.
