PEOPLExpress files application with the DoT

PEOPLExpress filed (20-Mar-2012) its application with the US Department of Transportation (DoT) to engage in interstate scheduled air transportation of persons, property and mail. The DoT authority, coupled with the airline’s ongoing FAA certification, will enable the airline to inaugurate service in summer 2012. In its application PEOPLExpress stressed plans to offer high-quality service at extremely low fares. The airline intends to provide service in markets that have no non-stop service, or are being underserved by the current carriers. The airline noted it does not intend to charge for the first two checked bags or seat assignments. [more - original PR]
