PHOENIX -- Phoenix officials said they hope the planned merger of US Airways and American Airlines will eventually mean more international flight connections for Sky Harbor International Airport.

City officials said they expect no major changes immediately from the merger, which would put the headquarters of the combined airline in Dallas.

That's where American is based. US Airways' headquarters is in Tempe.

US Airways has about 250-300 departures daily from Sky Harbor's Terminal 4, while American Airlines has only 20, operating out of Terminal 3.

Mayor Greg Stanton said US Airways has been clear in talks with him that Phoenix is important and that the merger airline will keep the Sky Harbor as a hub.
