OneJet Announces Three New Routes from Pittsburgh to Palm Beach, Kansas City and Memphis

The air transportation network that provides consumers in the US increased access to nonstop travel in small to medium markets, OneJet announced the introduction of three new routes from the Pittsburgh International Airport.

The company will introduce nonstop service to Palm Beach, Kansas City and Memphis. Palm Beach and Kansas City services will begin 7th March 2018, with Memphis service added on 27th March 2018. The company will concurrently begin nonstop service between Memphis and Kansas City. Tickets for all routes will go on sale beginning on 17th Jan. 2018.

With the launch of these routes, OneJet will introduce its new OneJet Plus service to the Pittsburgh market, offering expanded service onboard larger ERJ135 aircraft and providing travelers with enhanced amenities, including exit-row legroom at each seat (approx 38 inches); free 4G high-speed Wi-Fi; streaming entertainment gate to gate; and complimentary beer, wine and snacks en route. Travelers will also receive the same check-in conveniences that standard OneJet flights provide, including TSA Pre access for eligible travellers and valet planeside baggage service.

"For the past two years, OneJet's right-sized, point-to-point, nonstop services have met our customers' demand for expedited travel between key business and leisure destinations," OneJet CEO Matthew Maguire said. "The introduction of the OneJet Plus service marks a major milestone for the company, providing access to longer routes, along with an even further enhanced in-flight experience. We look forward to continuing to expand our network and supporting the growth of the communities and corporate customers we serve."

The OneJet Plus–branded ERJ135 aircraft will offer a comfortable 30-seat, brand-new leather interior and convenient morning and afternoon flights Monday through Friday. The new routes will provide fast and reliable flight options to regional business travellers, including those employed by major corporate customers in the Pittsburgh area.

"We know that nonstop air service is important to growing the economy in the Pittsburgh region, and OneJet is playing a key role in that growth, including the addition of larger aircraft," Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said. "With OneJet's announcement today, Pittsburgh International Airport will serve 72 destinations nonstop, nearly doubling the amount the airport had three years ago."

Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis added, "OneJet's unique business model that caters to corporate travellers is a key part of the regional network strategy of Pittsburgh International Airport.
