Judge approves DOJ settlement terms, finalizes US Airways, American Airlines merger

Merged airline agrees to divest multiple terminals

Following a conversation over a year in length, the US Airways Group Inc. and AMR Corp. merger originally proposed in Feb 2013 has been approved. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of Washington okayed a Department of Justice (DOJ) settlement that will allow the deal to go through with a series of stipulations set by the department.

"Together, American Airlines and US Airways have created a strong global competitor that provides better access to more destinations than we could ever provide independently," the newly combined American Airlines Group Inc. said in a statement.
