New Orleans-owned, based operator announces service from Armstrong InternationalNEW ORLEANS, LA) – Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is pleased to announce that GLO will begin nonstop service to three destinations beginning November 2015, just in time for the holidays. The nonstop destinations include Little Rock, AR; Memphis, TN; and Shreveport, LA.
GLO is a New Orleans-owned and based startup public charter operator and will offer a quality alternative to business and leisure travelers who have been relegated to multi-stop flights and exhausting road travel due to an absence of non-stop air service to multiple Gulf and Mid-South destinations. GLO’s public charter flights will be operated by Corporate Flight Management, Inc. onboard 30-passenger Saab 340B aircraft. Tickets are on sale now at www.FlyGLO.com .
“It’s time we restored non-stop air service to Gulf and Mid-South cities that should be easily connected for both business and leisure travelers—and GLO is proud to provide that service,” said New Orleans resident Trey Fayard, Founder and CEO of GLO. “GLO was born out of the recognition that travel options in the Gulf and Mid-South regions are incredibly limited by existing air carriers. Too often, both business and leisure travelers are forced into multi-stop flights or overreliance on road travel, often resulting in wasted time and productivity. GLO non-stop service will have New Orleanians out to their destinations first thing in the morning, and can have them back home by the same evening, ensuring the least time spent traveling.
"We’re excited to bring a new travel option that couples the time efficiency that comes from flying with the comfort and seamlessness that comes from a first-rate operation. Starting with three daily routes, we look forward to offering a more efficient, productive and comfortable travel experience from New Orleans to Memphis, Shreveport and Little Rock.”
GLO will offer daily non-stop, round-trip service from New Orleans International Airport to each destination. The daily flight timetables are as follows:Monday - Friday
