PHOENIX -- American Airlines is moving.

The airline is leaving Terminal 3 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and taking its operations to Terminal 4, effective Thursday, as part of its merger with U.S. Airways.

American Airlines Flight 2348 to Miami, scheduled to depart at 11:55 p.m., will be the last to leave Terminal 3 on Wednesday.

Passengers flying American will have to head to Terminal 4, through which more than 80 percent of Sky Harbor’s passengers fly. The first departure from Terminal 4 is a 6 a.m. flight to Dallas on Thursday.

American Airlines will place its ticketing kiosks and service counters next to those of U.S. Airways so passengers can avoid any confusion. The two airlines will eventually merge into one carrier that will use the American Airlines name and become the largest airline in the world.

U.S. Airways was based in Tempe, Ariz., before the merger. The new American Airlines Group is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas.
