Low fare airline PEOPLExpress adds service to Orlando, now with eight destinations

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Low-fare airline PEOPLExpress says it is offering flights from the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport to Orlando, Florida, starting Oct. 16.

The airline on Monday also announced that flights to eight destinations can be booked through March 31.

PEOPLExpress launched service in June. It offers flights to and from Atlanta; Boston; Newark, New Jersey; Pittsburgh, and West Palm Beach, Florida. Service starts to New Orleans on Aug. 28 and to St. Petersburg, Florida, on Aug. 29.

“From the very beginning, PEOPLExpress was designed to provide a fun, creative and innovative approach to air travel to dispel the myth that low air fares have to mean low service or an impersonal experience,” said Jeff Erickson, a long-time airline executive on behalf of the carrier. “PEOPLExpress is restoring the concepts of respect, value and excitement to the air travel experience.”
