OneJet CEO, Matthew Maguire, commented: “Nashville and Providence were two of our most highly demanded destinations from the Pittsburgh community. In addition to Southwest’s offering in the market, Pittsburgh travelers will now have access to additional schedule options designed to provide easy day trips between Pittsburgh and Nasvhille. We’re equally excited to welcome Providence to the One Jet network, building upon our existing service to Hartford to expand our presence in the Northeast market.”
Rhode Island Airport Corporation President and CEO, Iftikhar Ahmad, stated: “We are pleased to have One Jet service offered from Green Airport (PVD) to Pittsburgh, which has long been an important market for our passengers. We welcome One Jet and expect the customer centric amenities they offer will have great appeal to our business travelers.”
