Vision Airlines Announces New Service Between Greenville-Spartanburg and Northwest Florida

Date: January 18, 2011

Location:

              Vision Airlines has announced the launch of it’s non-stop, low-fare air service between Greenville-Spartanburg, S.C. and Destin • Fort Walton Beach, Fla., beginning March 25, 2011, with rates starting at $89/one way*. To celebrate the largest expansion of a commercial airline in more than a decade, travelers may book flights to Florida at the $49/one-way introductory fare, when booked between Jan. 18 – 23, 2011.

“Vision Airlines is excited to offer this new, low-cost air service to the Greenville-Spartanburg community and surrounding areas,” said David Meers -- chief operating officer, commercial operations, Vision Airlines. “It is our desire to continue to grow our service and route structure, and offer tremendous value to leisure travelers.”

Vision Airlines will operate flights three days per week, from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) to Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS), utilizing a 148-seat Boeing 737-400 aircraft, allowing travelers to experience an outstanding beach destination the minute they step off the plane.

Encompassing the southern sea towns of Destin • Fort Walton Beach • Okaloosa Island, Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast has something for everyone, from basking on 24 miles of shockingly-white shoreline and teeing off on more than 1,080 challenging holes, to casting lines in the fish-filled waters of the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” and watching dolphins dance at the state’s oldest marine park, Florida’s Gulfarium.

“We are excited to welcome Vision Airlines and their new non-stop service to Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast,” said GSP Executive Director, Dave Edwards. “We believe this new service will be well received and very successful as the state of Florida is a popular destination for Upstate travelers.”
