Get ready for the world's largest airline.

US Airways and American Airlines plan to merge.

The new airline will use the name 'American Airlines.'

You might be wondering if this merger will affect you as you fly out of Blue Grass Airport.

The airport's Marketing Specialist says for now..not really.

Louise Bowden says, "Passengers flying through shouldn't see any changes for quite some time. For those that are still flying on American, they can book their flights on AmericanAirlines.com, or call the same American reservation number. Same goes for US Airways. It will be quite some time before they see the two airlines actually merge into one. We won't see too many changes for a few years probably."

Bowden says the Transportation department's review of the proposed merger will take a year.
