New Regional Business Airline Started In New Orleans

Louisiana native Trey Fayard has launched GLO airlines, a regional business carrier for the Gulf South.  Beginning in November, GLO will begin running daily, non-stop flights from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY).  Round-trip air service will be provided to Little Rock’s Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT), Memphis International Airport (MEM) and Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV).  GLO will operate 30-passenger Saab 340B aircraft, with the intention of serving key destinations with poor current connectivity.  Memphis and New Orleans, for example, are two of the region’s biggest cities, but travelers going between the cities must either make an 800-mile round-trip drive or take a connecting flight via a hub like Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth or Houston.  Now, with GLO, they can fly direct.

In anticipation of its launch in New Orleans, GLO has provided a promotional one-way $189 GLO Saver fare.
