Starting this holiday season,
travellers will have the option to fly non-stop to Little Rock, Arkansas,
Memphis, Tennessee and Shreveport, Louisiana. GLO, a New Orleans owned and
based public charter operator, will begin daily non-stop flights to each of
these destinations starting November 15th. GLO offers a quality
alternative to business and leisure travelers that had been relegated to
multi-stop flights and long drive times to reach these destinations. GLO’s
flights will be operated by Corporate Flight Management, Inc. from Concourse B
using a 30-passenger Saab 340B aircraft. Each city will be served twice daily
Monday through Friday and once daily to each destination on weekends. Tickets are available at www.FlyGLO.com.
Additionally, Spirit Airlines will
begin daily service to Las Vegas, Nevada, in November. With the addition of Las Vegas, Spirit will
offer non-stop service to six destinations.
The other non-stop destinations include – Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Ft.
Lauderdale and Houston. Spirit Airlines offers
ultra-low fares and a range of optional services for a fee. This allows passengers to choose the travel options
they prefer, such as checking bags, seat assignments, and refreshments. Spirit
currently operates more than 375 daily flights to 57 destinations within the
U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean onboard a modern and fuel-efficient
all-Airbus fleet. They operate from
