OneJet will launch service from Pittsburgh International Airport to Providence, R.I., and Nashville, Tenn., this summer, the airline announced Thursday.

Nashville flights are set to launch July 12, and the Providence flights are set to launch Aug. 23, the release said.

The airline is under an agreement with the airport to announce service to 10 destinations by the end of this year. The two new flights bring the total announced so far to seven.

Nashville is the first destination announced that will not be a new nonstop destination for the airport.

Southwest Airlines provides one daily flight to Nashville, which departs Pittsburgh at 5:45 p.m. on weekdays and Sundays and departs at 7:55 a.m. Saturdays, said Alyson Walls, an airport spokeswoman.

The new OneJet flights will depart from Pittsburgh at 8:50 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays, complementing the Southwest flights well, the release said.

Matthew Maguire, OneJet CEO, said he expected “most if not all” of the remaining three destinations to be new nonstops for the airport, he said.

Nashville flights will go on sale Monday and Providence flights will go on sale Aug. 1, the release said.

The Providence flight will bring the number of nonstops the airport serves to 68.

OneJet caters to business travelers flying to medium-sized airports on seven-seater jets.

The airport awarded the airline $1 million in state gambling money in exchange for the new flights and for the airline to base its operations in Pittsburgh.

So far, the airline has announced service to Cincinnati, Louisville, Ky., Hartford, Conn., Richmond, Va., and Albany, N.Y.

The airline served Indianapolis and Milwaukee before the agreement was signed.

When Providence service launches, the airline will be offering 36 daily flights to and from Pittsburgh International, the release said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
