PEOPLExpress announced Thursday that they will not be able to resume service on the previously announced date of October 16th.

The company shut down all service from Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport in September amid issues with their aircraft.

On Thursday, the company said they have reached an agreement with an additional aircraft provider and they are still working to obtain approval to operate as an Indirect Aircraft Carrier, which will allow them to obtain planes from additional providers if necessary.

Until they have all the necessary government approvals, the company is unable to open reservations and resume service.

All customers holding existing reservations will be receiving full refunds.
