Vision Airlines Starts Offering Connections at Northwest Florida Regional Airport

by Staff on May 17, 2011

Vision Airlines is launching a new schedule which for the first time will offer passengers the opportunity to connect to other cities the carrier serves from its hub at Northwest Florida Regional Airport, which serves the Florida Gulf Coast resorts of Destin and Fort Walton Beach.

The carrier says that, in creating the ability for passengers to connect through Northwest Florida Regional Airport, it will be offering more than 100 new options for city-pair connections. Vision Airlines’ new schedule will take effect on June 1.

“When we launched our service in March, we felt it would be prudent to keep things simple, which meant only allowing passengers to fly directly to a destination,” says David Meers, Vision Airlines’ chief operating officer. “Now, by opening our entire system with connections, our customers will have many new destination options.”

Vision Airlines is growing its fleet of Boeing 737s with more 737-300s and 737-400s (like the 737-400 seen in this photograph) to help with the expansion of its scheduled-service network from more than 20 U.S. cities to Northwest Florida Regional Airport, as well additional schedules to several other Florida airports

Meers adds: “For example, the Atlanta passenger could only travel to Louisville, Destin or Gulfport prior to this announcement. Now, the Atlanta passenger can travel to 14 different destinations including Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg/Tampa and Las Vegas. This will give our passengers so many more options to take advantage of our low fares and we are very happy to deliver this value at a time when it seems airfares from other air carriers are skyrocketing.”

By adding the connections, Vision Airlines claims to be taking a big step in terms of its ability to connect more cities throughout the southeast U.S. with its leisure destinations, which include Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers/Punta Gorda, Orlando/Sanford, Tampa/St. Petersburg and Las Vegas.
