CHARLESTON HAS $39 FLIGHTS TO DC - Low Air Fares Finally Arrive

After years of high cost rates for flying out of Charleston's airport - there is good news.

Independence Airlines, the first low-fare airline to serve West Virginia, had their first flights out of the capitol city yesterday.

The flight to Dulles International in DC was filled at a $39 rate one-way.

The new low-fare service with six round-trip flights daily will make the Charleston area more marketable.

None of the one-way flights out of the airport exceed $100.
