The new PeoplExpress will begin flying on June 30, with flights from Newport News, Va., to three destinations: Newark, Pittsburgh and Boston.
Tickets go on sale June 4 at www.flypex.com. The carrier said one-way fares will start at $76.
The Newark route will operate twice daily, the Pittsburgh and Boston routes once a day.
Flights will be operated by Vision Airlines on 150-seat Boeing 737-400 jets. Twelve of the seats are premium economy, offering more personal space for a fee.
PeoplExpress plans to add four more destinations from Newport News this summer: West Palm Beach, Fla. (July 15), Atlanta (Aug. 1), St. Petersburg, Fla. (Aug. 28), and New Orleans (Aug. 28).
