New Airline Flying into Florida

May 15, 2013 No Comments by

A new Memphis, Tenn.-based airline has announced plans to offer direct flights between the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and cities around the Southeast.

Southern Airways Express will launch service to ECP, Destin and other destinations in the Southeast at the end of the month. Instead of large passenger jets, Southern Airways Express will operate three nine-seat turbo prop engine caravans with luxury, executive-style seating.

The new startup airline hopes to bring a sense of fun and luxury back to the aviation business.

“This is very much like what executives travel in and it’s very much like what people who are used to traveling in nice corporate aircraft travel in,” said Keith Sisson, chief operating officer for Southern Airways Express. “We’re just taking that experience and transferring it to the general public, and we’re doing so at very affordable rates.
