GLO, a new public charter service, is inaugurating service on November 15 on the first of three routes it is planning from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport to other cities in the southern United States.
New Orleans-based GLO, which was founded by New Orleans native Trey Fayard, will operate once-daily service on weekdend days and twice-daily service on weekdays between Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (IATA code MSY) and Little Rock’s Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT).
To serve the route, Corporate Flight Management, Inc. will operate a 30-seat Saab 340B turboprop regional airliner on public charter flights (regulated under 14 CFR Part 380) marketed by FlyGLO LLC d/b/a GLO.
GLO also plans to begin round-trip service from New Orleans to Memphis International Airport (MEM) on November 29 and to Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV) on December 14.
The new public charter service will offer promotional one-way $163 ‘GLO Saver’ fares on its New Orleans-Little Rock route through November 29.

“GLO is uniquely positioned to meet community needs in connecting New Orleans to cities in the Southern states, and we expect growth by this local company,” remarks Iftikhar Ahmad, director of aviation for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
In-flight service inside the 30-passenger Saab 340B will include complimentary beverages and snacks, with local favorites such as PJ’s Coffee and Evamor Water. GLO promises a generaous seat pitch and passengers will be offered complimentary local publications.
