FlyUS (stylised as flyUS) is a prominent airline featured in the HD Universe and it appears in Grand Theft Auto IV, GTA Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V. The company's slogan & motto tagline is: "Live A Little Fly With US".
FlyUS was founded in 1983, with the same era planes still in service. The Flight Attendants are described as old, cranky and miserable.
In Grand Theft Auto IV, the FlyUS appears to be the only airliner serving Francis International Airport.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, The airline's livery appears to be based off the United Airlines 1993-1997 "Battleship Grey" livery.
The design of the letters and colours also has a huge resemblance of that on FedEx's planes. Furthermore, the airline's resemblance might be a cross between Delta Air Lines and American Airlines, both in real life. The name and the logo of the bears some similarities to the British regional airline Flybe.
The livery changes in Grand Theft Auto V. It now appears to be almost entirely white, with the bottom of the fuselage and the engines, with a big resemblance to Scandinavian Airlines, painted red, "FlyUS" written on the sides like it's IV counterpart and the "US" on the aircraft fin. This appears to resemble a modern United Airlines livery.
