In early 1993, USAir (later known as US Airways) with newly-minted investment from British Airways launched the USAir Florida Shuttle to link cities within the state to one another. The shuttle featured hourly nonstops between Miami and Tampa/Orlando similar to USAir's Northeast Shuttle which did the same between New York-LaGuardia and Boston/Washington-National. The shuttle also featured frequent nonstops between Fort Lauderdale and Tampa/Orlando (almost hourly but not quite) and Miami and Jacksonville (6 roundtrips a day).
