New Charleston WV air service

If you haven’t heard there’s a new no frills low fare airline Peoples Express starting service from Charleston WV (CRW) to Orlando FL MCO) on October 16th

Service between Charleston and Orlando will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with Boeing 737 aircraft. Introductory fares start at $49 each way. Reservations are now open for the new route at or by calling toll-free (844) 4-FLYPEX.

They have an a la carte pricing model. This means that you pay for your airfare then there are plenty of extra fees. 

But then again legacy carriers like American and United have and/or are moving towards this pricing plan.

Be sure to add all the extras to your base airfare to determine your best deal!
