ATLANTA (AP) — Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials say they're welcoming a new low cost carrier that will provide service to Virginia.

Officials say PEOPLExpress will begin flying from Atlanta's airport on Friday. The airline will provide service between Atlanta and the Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport in coastal Virginia.

Airport officials say they're planning to celebrate with a ribbon cutting and a water cannon salute for the first inbound and outbound flights.

The airline's website advertises fares between Atlanta and Newport News starting at $79.
