Point-to-Point travel, no muss, no fuss - that's where it's at.  And no one knows that better than Southern Airways Express. 'Getting there' without the hassle is becoming more important than the perks that major airlines can provide to the increasing numbers of leisure travelers, as well as the time and cost-conscious business traveler. As many have experienced, the pre-flight process from parking to boarding can often take longer than the actual flight itself. Not to mention deplaning and car rental upon arrival at your destination. Southern Airways Express hopes to provide some relief with its fleet of Cessna Caravan aircraft - at least to those destined to regional cities including; Destin and Panama City, FL, Jackson and Oxford, MS, and Memphis, TN.  And that's just for now, additional cities are planned.

Connecting cities with convenient and affordable flights is more important than some may realize at first glance. The economic impact can be tremendous and the opportunities unlimited. Travel opens doors, whether it be for tourism activities are new business ventures, the ability to make new connections is essential.  As a major tourist destination and a growing entrepreneurial hub, it would be hard not to see the potential benefit for New Orleans. Success breeds success and so the possibilities of additional spin-offs and supporting services are indeed limitless - just the right catalyst the New Orleans East community can embrace.
