Airline to begin flight service between New Orleans, Destin
NEW ORLEANS- A public charter airline will add a seasonal nonstop service from New Orleans to Destin, Florida.
GLO Airlines announced Thursday that the service from Louis Armstrong International Airport to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport will begin March 25 and will run through Sept. 5. The flights are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
GLO's founder Trey Fayard says the company wanted to expand its services to cities in the region.
The airline launched in New Orleans last November with a focus on increasing the number of nonstop flights connecting destinations in the Gulf of Mexico and the mid-South region.
The flight brings Louis Armstrong International Airport's list of non-stop destinations to 53 cities. GLO will be the fifth carrier to offer flights to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport.
