More good news coming out of TF Green – PEOPLExpress, a low cost airline is looking to begin service out of the airport as early as this summer.

The Chamber was pleased to join Governor Lincoln Chafee and members of the business community Wednesday to officially welcome key members of the PEOPLExpress team including William E. Mayer, Chairman of the Board of Directors, company President Mike Morisi and Chief Marketing Officer Christine DeZarn during a reception at Providence’s Centro Restaurant and Lounge.
