BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Airport officials in Beckley have announced new nonstop flights to Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to media outlets, Florida-based ViaAir will begin the flights out of Raleigh County Municipal Airport by early December. The airline plans two flights on weekdays and one flight on Saturday and Sunday. Its 30-passenger Embraer turboprop planes will have two pilots and a flight attendant.

In addition, airport manager Tom Cochran said the airline will move its maintenance operation to the Beckley airfield. That maintenance hub will be housed in a 56,000-square-foot building at the airport and will service the planes of ViaAir and its parent company. It will employ about 50 people.
